Abstract

Writing is the most complicated one. In the process of writing, there are some difficulties faced by the students. First, the students often make errors in their composition when they write a paragraph, although the teacher has given the topic before. Second, they did not re-check their assignment. Third, the studentsÂ’ knowledge is low. The last, the students do not understand well about steps of writing. Furthermore, they have less in vocabulary and have no ability to write with good spelling but also in grammar. The design used in this study was descriptive qualitative research design because the researcher wanted to describe the studentsÂ’ errors and to give information about the frequency of occurrence of the grammatical errors made by the students in writing paragraph. The subject in this study was tenth grade Multimedia students of SMK Muhammadiyah 2 Malang. Out of 29 students, there were only 24 students who were able to do the assignment. This subject was chosen because more students in this class had most grammatical error. In collecting data, the researcher used writing test to the tenth grade Multimedia students of SMK Muhammadiyah 2 Malang. One way in which reliability or lack of reliability of a test is indicated; all tests had measurement error. The result of the tried out showed that the instrument used by the researcher was reliable. Based on the result of the data analysis, it was found there were kind of error made by students. In steps of writing there were 6 students who forgot about middle in writing paragraph and 21 students who forgot about closing in writing paragraph. In proofreading symbol identification and correction there were 6 (12,2 %) error in insert; 25 (51,1%) error in capitalize16 (32,6%) error in make lower case. In the component of grammar there were 8 (19,6%) error in using nouns; 1 (2,4%) error in pronouns; 19 (46,3%) error in verbs; 10 (24,4%) error in adjectives; 3 (7,3%) error in conjunctions. In surface strategy taxonomy there were 29 (25,4%) errors in omission; 20 (17,6%) errors in addition; 56 (49,1%) errors in misformation 9 (7,9%) errors in misordering. Based on the explanation above, it can be concluded that the most grammatical error made by students is proofreading symbol identification and correction in point insert (51,1%). However, based on the previous study done by Novita (2003), grammatical errors made by students are in the matter of grammatical error in sentence fragments form, grammatical error in comma splices form, grammatical error in run-on or fused sentences form, grammatical error in dangling modifier form. In this study, it may be assumed that the students made errors because they were confused in making and develop their mind-set in paragraph. Based on the result of the test, the students found difficulties in constructing the paragraph. This study is expected to give the contribution to the teacher who should give more attention to the studentsÂ’ errors by explaining the material clearly. The students should pay attention to the grammar rules that becomes the important aspect in language learning. Moreover, the further researcher can use the research as one of the references in conducting some research on studentsÂ’ non-linguistic problems in developing paragraph.
