Abstract


This article aims to evaluate ‘Q: Skills for Success’ 1 and 2 from teachers’ and students’ perspectives in the English Language Institute (YELI), the Royal Commission Colleges and Institutes (Yanbu). One of the goals of this study is to check whether this newly introduced coursebook is fairly appropriate for the preparatory year at YELI by comparing the results of evaluating this coursebook with findings of evaluating similar coursebooks in similar contexts. In order to answer the research questions, two questionnaires are administered to convenience samples from both teachers and students in YELI. The data are then statistically analyzed with the Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS). Descriptive statistics, t-test, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) are used. The study findings indicate that both teachers and students have highly positive attitudes towards both ‘Q: Skills for Success’ 1 and 2. Moreover, the findings shows that there is no significant difference between the participants’ perspectives according to gender difference. However, the results ofANOVA indicate that there are some significant differences between 001 and 002 students in their perspectives and attitudes towards the coursebook evaluated. Broadly, the study findings coincides with those of several similar/parallel studies in similar contexts.
