ABSTRACT Reading is a complex and interactive activity that needs resources to develop. In essence, reading lets learners examine arguments, make prediction, inference, or interpretation, and explore implication and consequence. Hence, the research aims at investigating how test takers’ performance in IELTS academic reading may differ on such tasks.

In order to accomplish the objectives of the study, 30 test takers have already participated in this research. To determine the participants’ homogeneity as well as reading proficiency, IELTS reading test was carried out at the outset of the research.
