The purpose of this study was to investigate the reading texts in Team Up in English 1-3 and Grade 9 English O-NET tests (2014-2017) in terms of reading text types and levels of reading questions, and also examine tensed and aspects and parts of speech (nouns, verbs, and adjectives) in the reading texts. The reading texts were collected and analyzed quantitatively by frequency count and qualitatively based on the categories of the New Wales (NSW) Government Education (2011). Bloom’s revised taxonomy (2001) was adopted to analyze the levels of reading questions. To investigate parts of speech, the Textalyser program was used as a tool, while to analyze tenses and aspects of the reading passages, 12 tenses and aspects of Haccius (2002) were used. Results of the study revealed that the most frequently found text types in both the textbooks and the O-NET tests were information reports. The study also found that the levels of reading questions in both textbooks and the O-NET tests were at low levels based on Bloom’s revised taxonomy. Most tenses and aspects found were present simple and past simple, while the number of nouns, verbs, and adjectives in the tests was found in Top 20 words in the textbooks.
