Abstract

This research aims to reveal (1) the types of texts in Bahasa Inggris SMA for Grade X Semester 1 revised edition of 2017 published by the Ministry of Education and Culture, (2) the readability level of the reading texts in the textbook using a cloze test, (3) the readability level of reading texts in the textbook using Fry Graphs and the SMOG Formula, (4) the differences of the readability level of reading texts based on the types of the texts in the textbook, (5) the factors affecting the readability level based on the results of the cloze test, Fry Graph and SMOG Formula, (6) the most suitable formula for the results of the cloze test. This research is quantitative descriptive research. The subjects are the texts in the textbook entitled Bahasa Inggris SMA for Grade X Semester 1 and the objects are the tenth grade students of state senior high schools in the city of Yogyakarta. The research procedure is divided into four stages, consisting of: (1) procurement of data, namely determination of units, determination of samples and noting/recording; (2) reduction, namely the process of reducing data by forming available data into one required form; (3) analysis, namely correcting student test results, changing students’ scores into percentages, then classifying them into different levels; (4) inference, namely the process of interpreting the results of data analysis that has been conducted. The results of this research indicate that there are 16 texts in the English textbook. Those texts are classified into five types of texts: transactional, descriptive, announcement, recount, and narrative texts. These texts have different levels of readability. They can be classified into two categories, namely independent and instructional categories. The former is a text within the textbook that can be taught independently to the students without teachers, while the latter requires a teacher/other parties' guidance. The most predominant factor to the readability level of text is the internal factor, which is the number of difficult words and their density level in each sentence and paragraph. The most suitable result to the cloze test is the Fry Graph test results. The readability level of the reading texts in this textbook is at the independence level or with a percentage of 63.4%. This means that the reading texts in this textbook can be studied independently by students even though there are some notes for some texts that are still at the instructional level.
