Critical thinking skill is an important skill needed at the college or university level to read and write critically. The skill enhances students to analyze and evaluate the information as a response to the text. This research aims to reveal their abilities to read critically by using Kurland theory of critical reading level and Toulmin reasoning elements as the indicator for their performances. Content analysis was applied as a method to interpret response essays from 16 students of Academic Year 2019/2020 as the research samples. The result of this research showed that 31.25% of students were still on the level of summary. 25% of students were on the level of descriptive and the percentage showed the same number for interpretation. 18.75% was the least percentage for the evaluation level. Thus, only 11 students made the claim successfully towards the author’s purposes. Less than 10 students used the elements of warrant and rebuttal. The result concludes that the higher level of analytical skill is still below the majority. Therefore, some intensive reading programs or assessments need to be recommended as the possible solution for this research.
