Quasi experimental with pretest and posttest non equivalent-group design was used. There were 301 students at eleventh grade students of State Madrasyah Aliyah Palembang in academic year of 2016/2017 who were used as the population of the study. 76 students were taken as sample by using purposive sampling. 38 students from the first class of eleventh grade students were chosen as experimental group and 38 students from the second class of eleventh grade students were chosen as control group. This study used speaking performance test to collect the data in a form of oral test. There were two kinds of test which&nbsp; administered in this study. They were pretest and posttest for both experimental and control groups. The results of the test were analyzed by using paired sample t-test and independent t-test. The result of this study showed that (1) significant improvement on the eleventh grade students’ speaking ability before and after the treatment at was found since the p-output was lower than 0,05; and (2) significant difference from students’ posttest score in experimental and control group on the eleventh grade students’ speaking ability taught by using Gallery Walk Strategy and teacher’s strategy were found since the p-output was lower than 0,05.

This research was an experimental study with factorial design. The total number of sample of this study was 50 students selected with claster sampling technique. The data of this study consisted of the scores on reading comprehension either through pre-test and post-test for experimental and control classes and the scores of cognitive style of the pre-test and post-test. Based on data analysis with two way Annova, the value of F- calculated is =14.40 &gt; than the value of F table =1.64. So, the hypothesis one “There is significant effect of discussion method on students’ reading comprehension achievements” is accepted. Two-way Annova analysis also found that the value of F- calculated on facto b (independent and dependent cognitive style) is = 0.158 &lt; than the value of F- table = 1.64. So, the hypothesis which says “There is any significant effect of cognitive style on students’ reading comprehension achievements” is rejected (Ha is rejected and Ho is accepted). Then two-way Annova analysis found that the value of F- calculated is =3.803 &gt; than the value of F- table =1.64. So, the hypothesis three which says” There is any significant effect on students’ reading comprehension achievements” is accepted (Ha is accepted and Ho is rejected). Based on findings, it can be concluded that this research has mixed results.</p> YANTI ISMIYATI, TAHRUN TAHRUN, INDAWAN SYAHRI, MAKMUR MAKMUR ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 http://jurnal.radenfatah.ac.id/index.php/edukasi/article/view/2096 Sun, 17 Feb 2019 17:41:42 +0000
