Abstract: The study investigated the potential role of a WebQuest module as a supplement to English as a foreign language (EFL) instruction at a technological institute located in northern Taiwan. This study evaluated an EFL instruction in which 44 college students enrolled in EFL reading course were instructed to use a researcher-developed WebQuest module embedded in the EFL instruction. The study examined the Likert-type attitudinal scores of a researcher-developed survey for students who completed the WebQuest learning activities. Data collected revealed that students had an overall positive attitude and perception toward their performance on both vocabulary acquisition and reading comprehension toward WebQuest learning. A significantly positive correlation was found between student motivation and perception on vocabulary acquisition and on learning reading skills. However, a low correlation was found between student motivation and student perception on grammar learning. Implications and recommendations are provided for EFL instruction and for future study.
