“…This investigation is similar to Handayani, Furaidah, and Ivone (2020), who have investigated the readability level in the Erlangga textbook for 11 th -grade students using Coh-Metrix as a tool for collecting the data. Their findings point out that the text with the lowest total number of sentences and the lowest total of words indicated the text is difficult, with two total sentences and 56 total words.…”

“…Poor management of text difficulty level risks the construction of a reading comprehension test consisting of texts mismatched to the test-taker's English proficiency level. Most text readability studies have focused only on the interaction between textual complexity and readers' reading comprehension as individuals [ 40 , [44] , [45] , [46] , [47] ] and between the textual complexity of school textbooks and texts of the national examination test [ 41 , 42 , 48 ]. The gap that this study attempts to fill pertains to the lack of attention to the interaction between the textual complexity of passages in a reading comprehension test and item difficulty in the test.…”
