Abstract

This study was conducted in order to determine if there is any correlation between grammar mastery and the accuracy linguistic features in students’ writings and to find out which type of text that is dominantly difficult to write. Before conducting this research, the writer observed and assumed that grammar mastery does not correlate with the accuracy of linguistic features in writing. The population of this study was 167 third- semester students of English Education Program of FKIP Mataram University academic year 2014/2015, while the sample designed was 42 students taken through random cluster sampling technique. Unfortunately, 6 of them left because of financial problem, so there were only 36 students appeared as the subjects. The subjects were asked to do two types of parallel test: grammar test and writing test. In the grammar test, students were asked to choose the best answer for 25 items, while in the writing test, they were writing both recount text and exposition text. After analyzing and calculating the data, it was discovered that the correlation coefficient (rxy) was .5775. To make a conclusion whether the grammar mastery correlates with the accuracy of linguistic features in writing, the rxy, then, was compared to the r-table at the both level of confidence .05 and .01. The r-table in the level of confidence .05 was .3291 and in the level of confidence .01 was .4238. Since the rxy was higher than r-table of both level of confidence, it is concluded that there is any correlation between grammar mastery and the accuracy of the linguistic features in writing of third semester students of English Education Program of FKIP at Mataram University academic year 2014/2015. Moreover, it shows that the recount text was more dominantly difficult to compose than exposition text.
