This study aims 1) to compare the speaking
performance of university students who graduated from
Islamic boarding school and public school-based senior
high schools and 2) to investigate the potential factors
affecting the difference of their speaking performance.
First year students of a State Islamic University in
Lampung - Indonesia participated as the subjects of
research. The data of students’ speaking performance
was obtained from the documentation of students’
speaking entrance test score. Then, a semi-closed-ended
questionnaire investigating the curricular, co-curricular,
and extra-curricular programs in their previous high
schools covering the sorts, the frequency, and the
duration of the activities was distributed to disclose the
underlying reasons of the speaking performance
differences. The results revealed that generally the
Islamic boarding school-based senior high school
graduates’ speaking performance is slightly better than
the public-based one with a minor difference on the five
aspects of speaking assessment. The former showed
better achievement in fluency, vocabulary and
comprehension, whereas the latter got better result in
grammar and pronunciation. Dissimilar variations of the
co-curricular and extra-curricular activities at both types
of school and the frequency of the activities might be the
potential factors affecting the differences.
