    Abstract

    The teachers of English in Demakrecentlyhave faced a problematic dilemma in choosing good media for their students. This problem has been solved by the use of a medium called student‟s worksheet. However, the author of the student‟s worksheet was not a native speaker which causes unreliable contents of the worksheets. Many mismatches were found in the student‟s worksheets. Thus, this research is meant to identify the quality of the student‟s worksheets used in Demak regency by analyzing the mismatches so that teachers become aware of the media should be used. The data assessed in this research were 24 reading texts found in KARTIKA student‟s worksheets. Since the objective was to describe the mismatches appear, I used qualitative method.The data was processed adapting the error analysis theory since the mismatches analyzed were in the form of error and mistakes. Two main variables assessed were the classification (taxonomy) and the source of the mismatches (interlingual or intralingual). Some steps were taken in conducting this research. First, I collected the data. Second, I identified the data and found the potential mismatches. The next step was describing them. And the last final step was evaluating the data after explaining them. The result of this study showed that there were 108 errors found in the reading texts of these student‟s worksheets. Among those 108 errors, omission was the most error occurred (58.3%). They were mostly caused by the interference of the mother tongue which also refers to interlingual (61.1%) and slightly followed by the lack of knowledge which refers to intralingual (48.9%). With such failures appeared, I conclude that the use of these student‟s worksheets as the only material in class is irrelevant since the contents are unreliable. From this research, teachers are expected to be more careful in choosing the correct media.
