Abstract

The purpose of this study was whether the reading comprehension questions on test made by English teacher reflect criteria of Bloom’s Taxonomy or not, in what level dominant found it. The English teachers of senior high school in Padang Pariaman Regency were asked to construct nine questions in the form of essay related to three text; descriptive, recount, narrative which are provided by the researcher. Then, the researcher analyzed the questions in order to get the percentage of HOTS questions created by English teachers. The result of this study indicated that English teachers tend to write LOTS questions rather than HOTS questions. For HOTS questions, in the level of evaluating question, it was mostly created by English teachers in Padang Pariaman. Related to problems faced by English teachers in creating HOTS questions, most of teachers have difficulty in constructing HOTS questions for students who have lower level of critical thinking. Then, they also have difficulty in creating HOTS questions which are effective and can deliver the intended questions. Since designing a good test item is not easy, well training and knowledge about constructing test items are necessary for English teachers.
