    Abstract

    Designing a reading comprehension test is not an easy task for teachers. They need much time to compose and type the test items. Teachers also has to use lots of paper to copy the test. Besides that, the students are getting bored of the monotonous activities in reading comprehension test. Using quiz maker softwares is one of many solutions for these kind of problems. However, not all teachers find it easy to use such software. The objective of the research conduted here is to find out how is the teachers and students perceptions toward the application of Question Writer Quiz Maker 4.2 in testing reading comprehension. This study used a descriptive qualitative research design. The writer used open-ended questionnaire, observation sheet and structured interview. The observation sheet was used to record any event in the field research process. The open-ended questionnaire and structured interview was used to find out the teachers’ and students’ perception toward the application of Question Writer Quiz Maker for Testing Students’ Reading Comprehensing. The result showed that the English teachers’ perception toward the application of Question Writer Quiz Maker was positive, while the students’ was negative. The questionnaire shows that both teachers has positive perceptions which are 93% positive from the first teacher and 80% positive from the second teacher. The common problem faced by the English teachers who used this software was that the school’s internet connection was not reliable enough to facilitate them in conducting the test using a computerized quiz at school. After conducting the research, I came up to a conclusion that using computer software, such as Question Writer Quiz Maker, provides a good alternative way for English teachers in designing a more attractive and interactive reading comprehension test. Moreover, I propose that the school has to give more training to the teachers in utilizing quiz maker software and to give more exercises to their students using computerized quiz made by the quiz maker.
