The Effectiveness of Using Cornell Note-Taking Strategy to Improve Students’ Listening Comprehension
Abstract: The research is aimed to know and explain the effectiveness of using the Cornell note-taking strategy to improve students’ listening comprehension. The population of this research was the first-grade students of SMAN Cahaya Madani Banten Boarding School. There were two classes named experiment class and control class, each of which has 30 students. This research used a quantitative method with the quasi-experimental as the research design. The instruments used for collecting data were tested in the form of multiple choice. The tests were given as the pre-test and post-test of the classes. Both tests were conducted to measure the students’ listening comprehension before and after giving the treatment. The data which was collected was calculated by using T-test in the form of Fisher formula to see how is the effectiveness of using the Cornell note-taking strategy on students’ listening comprehension. Based on the research analysis, the effectiveness of using the Cornell note-taking strategy was found in the result of to was 2,9. The value was higher than the value of tt in the significance of 5% in which 2,9>2,00. In addition, the value of that was 2,9 was also higher than the value of tt insignificance of 1% in which 2,9>2,66. Hence, the alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted and the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected. In conclusion, there is an effect of using the Cornell note-taking strategy on students’ listening comprehension at the first-grade students of SMAN Cahaya Madani Banten Boarding School.
