The study was conducted in a quasi-experimental design using a single group of participants. The participants were 44 students in the Thai context.

The students’ scores before and after the treatment were compared using a paired-sample test. The effectiveness of the learning management was analyzed considering the students’ performances during the learning process (E1) and the students’ post-test scores (E2). Mean scores and standard deviations were also used to analyze students’ questionnaire answers. The result of the study indicates the benefits of the QSCCS technique in developing grade 9 students’ summary writing skills. In addition, it was discovered that the participants were satisfied with learning to write a summary with the QSCCS technique.
