Abstract

Writing is one of the skills in English that involves students’ creativity and confidence in expressing the ideas, feelings and thoughts into a written form. Nevertheless, most students are afraid of writing due to the grammatical feature.However, it is believed that students are able to minimize their anxiety by starting to write diary. Thus, in this present study the researcher intended to investigate the correlation between students’ habit in writing diary and students’ writing achievement.This study employed correlational research design to meet the objective that is to investigate the correlation between students’ habit in writing diary and students’ writing achievement. The target population of this study was students on the second year of SMP N 1 Belik. The sample of this study was students of class VIII A and VIII C which consisted of 76 students. They were cluster randomly selected from 7 classes of the total population of 266 students. In collecting the data, the researcher used document of paper test result and questionnaire lists as the research instrument. In order to understand the correlation, this study applied Pearson Product Moment as the analysis. The result of this study showed that there was a low positive correlation between students’ habit in writing diary and students’ writing achievement. The result was strengthened by the calculation of comparison between r-value and rtable. It was found that r-value was 0.258 and r-table at 0.05 level of significance in the degree of freedom (df = 74) was 0.225. It claimed that the r-value was higher than r-table. Besides, the result of this study showed that p = 0.024 and α = 0.05. It means the p value was lower than α. Thus, the alternative hypothesis (Hi) was accepted and the null hypothesis (H0) was rejected. To sum up, the increase of students’ habit in writing diary score might be followed by the increase of students’ writing achievement score. Key words: habit in writing diary, writing achievement, correlation. The Advisor I, The Researcher,
