Imanuel Kamlasi, Anselmus Sahan
Many English test items that constructed did not cover all the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. This investigation analyzed of interval range, divergent and convergent of English test items for senior high school. The qualitative method was applied in this study. There was an English test sheet used as the instrument consists of 50 items. The data were analyzed by codifying, classifying, analyzing and discussing. The results of the research showed that there was a significant interval among taxonomy. It indicated that the there was no balance interval between one taxonomy to another. The data showed that high order convergent was the highest percentage with 46%. Then it was followed by low order convergent with 44%. The low order divergent made 10% in the English test sheet. While, level IV was high order divergent was 0%. This indicates that there was no item which was categorized as level IV; high order divergent.
