Abstract

This research is carried out to improve the students’ writing ability in narrative text using Edmodo during the Covid 19 pandemic on tenth-grade students of SMKS Kerabat Kita Bumiayu in the academic year 2021/2022. The subject of this research is 32 students of the class X AKL3 (Accounting and Finance). The method used in this research is Classroom Action Research (CAR). The writers act as the teachers and Mrs. Laeli Rahma F, S.Pd is a collaborator in the teaching and learning activities. The writers use two cycles. Each cycle consists of planning, action, observation, and reflection. Each cycle also consists of two meetings. The writers use two methods to collect data. They are tests and questionnaires. The writers measure the students' writing ability in the narrative text by giving a pre-test before treatment. After being given a pre-test, the writers use Edmodo in cycles I and II. Based on the results, the writers find an increase in students’ writing ability in narrative text after using Edmodo. The end of the second cycle shows that 81.25% of the students reach the KKM (70). In the first cycle, the mean of post-test 1 (71.79) is higher than pre-test (64.57). The t-test calculation shows that the t-table is 2.04 while the t-test is 6.5. In the second cycle, the mean of post-test 2 (78.94) is also higher than post-test 1 (71.79). The result of the t-test is higher than the t-table that is 6.94 from t-table 2.04. It means that there is a difference between post-test 1 and post-test 2. In conclusion, Edmodo can improve the students’ writing ability in narrative during Covid-19 pandemic.
