The instrument tools are students’ reading score such as pre-test and post-test such as summarizing and responding test; and reading assessment rubric. The result showed that t-calculated is 14.136 with the value of df is 58 while the result of t-table in the level significant t0.05 = 1.684 and t0.01 = 2.423. Since the t-calculated is higher than t-table (14.136 > 1.624 < 2.423), it can be concluded that the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted and null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected.
