Abstract

This study evaluated the tenth grade students’ English textbook published
by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia 2016
retrospectively. It had purposes to know whether or not the textbook has all the
criteria expected in the adapted version of ELT Textbook Evaluation Checklist
proposed by Mukundan and Nimehcisalem (2015); as well as to know how this
textbook can be improved. Three tenth grade English teachers in three different
senior high schools in Jember were selected as the evaluators to give their opinion
about the content of the textbook. The checklist result was counted to look for the
average score from each criterion; and the result of the interview was analyzed using
a procedure of analyzing qualitative data adapted from Creswell (2012). The findings
revealed that this textbook has all the criteria expected in the checklist with the total
average score of 2.95 (high usefulness); but there were some improvements needed
dealing with suitability to learners, general content, grammar, pronunciation,
exercises, reading, methodology, and listening. Therefore, 10 suggestions were
given by the evaluators to overcome the problems in those criteria.
