CHAPTER V
CONCLUSION, IMPLICATION, AND SUGGESTION

5.1 Conclusion
Based on the result of the study, it can be concluded that:
1. There is no correlation between students reading habit and their reading
comprehension of the eleventh grade science class students of MAN 1
Surakarta. It can be caused by many factors. Some of them are the condition
of the students when answering questionnaire and test and the situation of the
class, the students have had the skills of reading comprehension. In addition,
the researcher did not hold the readability test before giving questionnaire
and test. That was one of the weaknesses of this research.
2. There is a positive correlation between students vocabulary mastery and their
reading comprehension of the eleventh grade science class students of MAN
1 Surakarta.
3. There is a positive correlation between students reading habit, vocabulary
mastery, and their reading comprehension of the eleventh grade science class
students of MAN 1 Surakarta.
5.2 Implication
The result of this research shows that there is no correlation between
students reading habit and reading comprehension because r-obtained is lower
than r-table (0.030 < 0.266). However, reading habit still gives contribution to the
reading comprehension 0.7%. On the other hand, vocabulary mastery has
correlation to reading comprehension. It is shown by the higher r-obtained than r-

60

table (0.374 > 0.266). Furthermore, vocabulary mastery contributes 37,3% to


reading comprehension. In addition, there is positive correlation between reading
habit, vocabulary mastery, and reading comprehension because R-obtained is
higher than r-table (0.374 > 0.266). They contribute 14% to reading
comprehension. It means that 86% is contributed by other factors. Therefore,
reading habit and vocabulary mastery should be considered by teachers in
improving reading comprehension. Based on the research, vocabulary mastery
must be the priority in increasing reading comprehension than reading habit.
Vocabulary mastery is an important factor for students who want a good
result in reading comprehension ability. Besides, the students are expected to have
good reading habit. The students who have a good vocabulary mastery will have
better reading comprehension than those who do not. Teacher should motivate
their students for having many vocabularies by reading a lot and tell why the
students should have a good reading habit.
5.3 Suggestion
Based on the conclusion and implication above, it can be suggested that:
1. For the teachers
By knowing the contribution of students vocabulary mastery to reading
comprehension, the teachers are expected to give more practices such as giving
new words continually, giving times for asking both in and outside classroom,
giving some tricks to understand words in reading lesson, let the students open the
dictionary to find many meanings of words and always concerning on increasing
students vocabulary.

2. For the students


The students should realize that reading comprehension is important. So,
they must improve their reading skill doing more exercise in

understanding reading passage.


The students should realize that having many vocabularies can help them
to understand reading text. So, it will be easier for them to comprehend a

text.
The students should realize that getting new vocabulary is not only from

the teachers but also can be obtained by reading a lot.


4. For other researchers
It will be better if the researcher gives the questionnaire and the test to the
students in the beginning of the period (in the morning) because they are

still fresh.
It will be better if the researcher uses readability test before giving the
questionnaire and test to the students because it can help them to

understand more about what the questions mean.


It will be better if the researcher does not give all the questionnaire and
test to the students directly (if it is too many), because it can be burden for

them related to the concentration of answering questions.


Hopefully, there will be other researchers who investigate similar topic.
So, this study will be continued and there will be a better solution in
improving students reading comprehension.
