Abstract

The objective of the research is to find out significant differences on the writing achievement between students taught through Project-Based Learning, Problem-Based Learning, and those who are not. This research is quasi-experimental research. The subjects consisted of two groups of students as the experimental groups and one group as the control group. The population was grade eight students of SMP N 2 Kalasan, Sleman, Yogyakarta. The sample was three classes that were selected by applying the cluster random sampling technique. The sample obtained was students of Classes VIII D,VIII E, and VIII F, where Class VIII E was taught using the Project-Based Learning Method, Class VIII F was taught using the Problem-Based Learning Methods, and Class VIIID was taught using the Conventional Learning Method. The data were obtained by means of two essay writing tests. The data analysis used descriptive analysis and inferential statistics. The hypothesis was tested using the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) at the significance level of 0.05. The results show that there is a significant difference in the writing ability among grade eight students of SMP N 2 Kalasan, Sleman, Yogyakarta taught by using the Project-Based Learning, from those taught using the Problem-Based Learning and Conventional Learning Methods. The result of the ANCOVA in the posttest score of the experimental groups and the control group shows that the significance value is 0.001, which is less than the significance level of 0.05 (F = 7.493, p < 0.05). This means that there is significant difference on the writing ability among the three groups.
