The Influence of Project Based Learning and Motivation Achievement on Improving Writing Ability

Hanafi Hanafi


Writing skill is one of the English skills which is often regarded as something
difficult to master. Students tend to have less attention to this skill. Even worse,
some teachers also often lack of attention to it since it requires more time to check
the students work on writing. Consequently, the students’ writing competence
is difficult to increase. To overcome the problem, the possible alternative the
teacher can use is using Project Based Learning since the approach seems to be
effective to improve the students’ writing competence. The other aspect that can
possibly influence the writing competence is Motivation Achievement. In this
research, the problem investigated is whether or not there is influence using
Project Based Learning and Achievement Motivation in increasing writing
ability. The kind of research used is experimental research with nonrandomized
control group pretest posttest design. The data analysis used is t-test using
SPSS version 21. The result of the research shows that Project Based Learning
influences the students’ writing ability, while Achievement Motivation has no
significant impact on the students’ writing ability.
