In similar with the pre-intervention questionnaire, 30 questions were also asked to participants (control and experimental groups) as a post-intervention questionnaire to evaluate to what extent participants improved their motivation of learning EFL critical reading after practicing critical reflection. The post-intervention questionnaire results proved that critical reflection has the effect in enhancing students’ motivation of learning EFL critical reading regarding independent samples T-test test of data analysis.
