Abstract :

The present study aimed to explore Teachers' perspectives about the effect of Tawjihi English Exam (hereafter TEE) on English Instruction at the Second Secondary Stage in Jordan. Two samples were selected. The first one consisted of 205 EFL teachers who responded to the questionnaire, and the second sample consisted of 25 EFL teachers who were purposefully selected to be interviewed in their schools during the academic year 2013-2014. Results showed that teachers did not believe in the effectiveness of TEE in developing learners' English language skills. Besides, they agreed that TEE did not have positive effects in future English learning.
