students of second semester as the sample, 23 as the experiment class 1 and 23 were included as
experimental class 2 which were taken by using disproportionate systematic purposive sampling. In

non-parametric formula. After analyzing the result of data by using non-parametric formula, the
researcher gets the result of tratio is 5,096 and ttable 2,02 (on criterion 1) and 2,69 (on criterion 2). It
means that tratio is bigger than ttable, then the criterion of tratio is Ha is accepted if tratio is bigger than ttable.
