In addition, there was a significant difference experimental group and control group. It showed that from the difference analysis on post-test of experimental and control group. It could be seen from the result of the independent samples t-test. It wasfound that p-output was 0.000 for sig. (2-tailed). Since the p-output value was lower than 0.05. Thus, the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected and the research hypothesis (Ha) was accepted.In other words, there was a significant difference in reading achievement between students’ who were taught by Probable Passage strategy and those who were not.
