The data are collected from the recorded time spent by students on X-reading activities and questionnaires based on students’ perception on how extensive reading contributes to their critical thinking skill. The data are analyzed using Product Moment formula and Coefficient Determination to find out to which extent X-Reading contributes to students’ critical thinking skill.
