    Abstract

    This study is aimed at finding out: (1) to find out whether internet-based material is more effective than textbook material to teach reading comprehension; (2) to find out whether students who have high learning motivation have better reading comprehension than those who have low motivation; and (3) to find out whether there is an interaction between the teaching materials and students’ learning motivation for teaching reading. This study is an experimental study with ANOVA 2X2 factorial design which is related to the aims of the study. She decided to use a quasi-experimental design. The population was 8 classes, 255 students. From the whole population, two classes (60 students) were taken as the samples. The sampling which was used was cluster random sampling. The main effects are the materials of internetbased material and textbook material. The simple effect is the level of students’ learning motivation. The respondents are the students of Class B and C, 60 students. 30 students are the experimental group, the class which is taught using internet-based material and 30 students are the control group, the class which is taught using textbook material. To split the students’ learning motivation levels, the median-split method is used. The data are collected using questionnaire for assessing the level of learning motivation and objective test for assessing reading comprehension. The data are described using descriptive statistic in looking for mean, median, mode, and standard deviation. In requirement testing for parametric statistic, it was followed by prerequisite testing consisting of normality testing adopting Lilliefors method and homogeneity testing adopting chi-square (χ) test. The data are analyzed using multifactor (2X2) ANOVA or F-test. To find which means are significantly different from one another, the Tukey’s test is used. The critical value in this test is α = 0.05. After the data are analyzed, it can be concluded that: (1) the group of students who are taught using internet-based material have better reading comprehension achievement than those who are taught using textbook material; (2) the students who have high motivation have a better reading comprehension achievement than those who are taught by textbook material; and (3) there is an interaction between the teaching materials (internet-based material and textbook material) and the level of learning motivation in teaching reading comprehension for university students. It means that the effects of teaching materials used depend on the level of learning motivation of the students.
