  The Strength and Weakness of IQ Score .............. The Correlation Between Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Students’ Achievement ................................

CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION A. Background of the Study Education absolutely is an infrastructure and prerequisite to reach a

  If the childwas significantly "smarter" than a "normal" child of his or her age, the child was given a higher score, and if a child scored lower than expected for a child of his 3 or her age, the child was given a lower IQ score. The HeadmasterThe result of this research is also expected to be useful input for headmaster to support teaching learning activity by improving anddeveloping the quality of education in the school, in order that students are motivated and interested in learning English.

CHAPTER II THEORITICAL FRAMEWORK A. Intelligence Quotient In this chapter the writer explains about the theory of intelligence, the general

theory of IQ, IQ score, Wechsler test, the definition of learning and the definition of learning achievement included the hypothesis.

1. The theory of Intelligence

  7In addition, most researchers have similar idea that intelligence is the extent to which someone is capable of adapting to the environment and that measures ofintelligence indicate the level of social functioning as well as a specific level of 3 attained knowledge. Intelligence in this term is not remembering activity, learning by books, mastering academic skill, or smart people who follow the test, but intelligence is acombination of general ability that included the ability of think and conceptual think planning, problem solving, and efficient learning.


  Intelligences are attraction to and skill with specific stimuliThe essence of intelligence in Multiple Intelligence theory becomes clearer when we distinguish the “how” of thinking from the “what” ofthinking. Experiential intelligence: the ability to deal with novel situations; the ability to effectively automate ways of dealing with novel situations so they are easilyhandled in the future; the ability to think in novel ways.

2. The General Theory of Intelligence Quotient (IQ)

  He discovered, forexample, how many of the tasks the average six-year-old could pass, and then any other children who passed the same number of tests were assigned a mentalage of six years. The test would not be scored simply on the the basis of the number of items a child passed but rather with reference to age standards.11 Drs.

3. Intelligence Quotient Score

13 Quotients

  The table below describe the descriptive classifications of intelligence 13 13 Table 2.2 Classification of IQ IQ Description130+ Very superior Superior 120-129110-119 High average 90-109 Average 80-89 Low average 70-79 BorderlineBelow 70 Extremely low Apparently, the IQ gives a good indication of the occupational group that a person will end up in, though not of course the specific occupation. In their book, Know Your Child’s IQ, Glen Wilson and Diana Grylls outline occupations typical 14 of various IQ levels: Table 2.3 Occupations Typical of Various IQ levels 140 Top Civil Servants; Professors and Research Scientists.

4. The strength and weakness of IQ score

  IQ scores are used in many contexts: as predictors of education achievement or special needs, by social scientists who study the distribution of IQ scores inpopulations and the relationships between IQ score and other variables, and as predictors of job performance and income. The highest score is reached in adult age and back down toward old age, even though thereare some researcher were defined that the increasing of IQ score more influenced by the increasing of physic ability in doing the tests than the increasing ofintelligence level.

5. The Wechsler Tests

17 Scale (WAIS) in 1955. The adult test has since been revised yet again, in 1981

  In 1963 he published the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale ofIntelligence (WPPSI), which was designed for children from 1949, the WISC-R and in 1992 as the WISC III. is the aggregate or global capacity of the individual to act purposefully, to think rationally, and to deal effectivelywith his environment” (Wechsler, 1944).

19 The Wechsler tests have useful diagnostic capabilities that enable a skilled

  examiner to evaluate such personality characteristics as defense general mode of handling life’s situations. Thus, a Wechsler tests give a three-dimensional pictureof the subject, and can often tell us not only that a given child lacks motivation, but also why.

B. Learning Achievement

1. Definition of Learning

  First formulation: “…acquisition of any relatively permanent change in behavior as a result of behavior and experience.” The second 22 formulation is “Process of acquiring responses as a result of special practice.”This means that Learning is not only process to acquire knowledge and skill but also behaviors, values or preferences that got by practice and experience. The change of learning if: (1) the change happen consciously; (2) thechange in learning is continuously and functional; (3) the change in learning is positive and active; (4) the change in learning is not temporary; (5) the change inlearning in is purposed or directed; (6) the change is include all aspects of 26 behavior.

2. Definition of Learning Achievement

  Stanley and Hopkins explain the definition of achievement more detail, according this statement, achievement is certain skillthat acquired by students in certain lesson, for example in English subject, the students are hoped able to master the skills in English such as listening, speaking,reading and writing. Besides, Garrison, Kingston, and McDonald affirm the definition of achievement as the progress pupils make toward the goals and objectives of the curriculum,they then assert further about the definition that achievement may be the one’s30 ability or the extent of his/her knowledge in a specific content area.

CHAPTER II I RESEARCH METHODOLOGY A. Purpose of The Research The purpose of the study can be stated as follows: a. To find out the IQ score of first year students of MAN 19 Jakarta

  To find out the students’ achievement scores in Learning English. To find out whether there is a correlation between students’ IQ scores and their achievement in learning English or not.

B. Place and Time of The Research

  Population and Sample The population of this research is the whole tenth grade students of MAN 19 Jakarta, the total is 96 students that divided into three classes, X.1, X.2 and X2. There are seven psychology aspects in this intelligence test, they are: “pemahaman ruang, daya abstraksi, kemampuan bahasa, kemampuan dasar ilmu pasti, pengertian praktis dan ilmu logika, potensi verbal / kapasitas belajar, kwalitas & ketelitian.” And to get the data of students’ reading achievement, the writer makes English test for the students which consist of fifty questions in multiple choices.

F. Technique of Data Analysis

  : Guaded from X: Guarded from Y : Total score of students’ English score distribution∑xy : Total number of Multiple between X score and Y score : Total score of students’ IQ distribution∑y Note: rxy : Correlation coefficient between IQ score and English ScoreN : Number of respondentsX : Distribution of students’ IQ scoreY : Distribution of Students’ English score∑x ∑ −( The writer used a survey method through correlation technique. And to find out the result of this research, the writer analyzed the data by using Pearson’s ProductMoment Correlation, as follow: Product Moment Correlation is one of technique that usually used to find outthe significance of the correlation between two variables.

  Technique of Data Collecting In collecting the data, the writer came to counseling teacher (BK) inMAN 19 to get the data of students’ IQ score. And then, to collect students’English score, the writer asked permission of the English teacher to give the students English test.

CHAPTER IV RESEARCH FINDING AND DICUSSION A. Data Description In this chapter, it will be discussed and explained about the score of Intelligence Quotient and the result of students’ English Achievement which have

  been collected. To find out whether there is significance correlation between Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Students’ Achievement in Learning English or not.

1. Data of Students’ Intelligence Quotient From the table, it can be seen the total score from 65 respondents is 6955

  The minimum score is 91, maximum score is 127, mean is 107, median is 106, mode is 105. The IQ th score of X.1 and X.2 students that held by YACOBI on February 6 2010, as follows: 26 15108 48.

91 N. 65

2. Data of Students’ Achievement From the table, it can be seen the total score from 65 respondents is 3690

  The writer took the students’ English score from the result of students’ finalexamination. ∑ 3690 After achieving the data of the IQ score as variable X and score of English learning achievement as variable Y, the next step is determine the calculationtable, which is to be used as the calculation for the index score correlation of product moment.

3. The Correlation Between Intelligence Quotient and Students’ Achievement

  Table 4.3 Coefficient Correlation Variable X and Variable Y N 112 66 12544 4356 7392 9.112 52 12544 2704 5824 7. 10656 11236 3136 5936 51.105 54 11025 2916 5670 52.105 66 11025 4356 6930 68 12100 4624 7480 44.110 60 12100 3600 6600 45.110 60 12100 3600 6600 30.

B. Data Analysis

  After the calculation of whole data from variable X and variable Y, the next step is to insert the data from the table into the Pearson’s Product momentformula to find the correlation index as follows: . Y ( ) ) ∑ − ∑ ∑ − ∑ 65.398406 ( 6955).

C. The Test of Hypothesis

2. Formulation the null hypothesis (Hо): there is not a significant correlation between variable X and variable Y

  Based on the description of calculation above, the result of this research is r o is bigger than r t (r table) r t > r > r , so the null hypothesis (Hо) is rejected, andalternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted. After the writer proceeded the formula, as it had been found out about the result of correlation, the next step is to give the interpretation of “r” score (rxy ).

D. Data Interpretation

1. From the data of students’ IQ score and their English score, it appeared that

33 Table 4.4Interpretation of Product Moment Score “r” Score of Product Interpretation Moment (rxy) 0.0 – 0.20 There is no correlation (Very low)0.20 – 0.40 There is low correlation (Low)0.40 – 0.70 There is medium correlation (Enough)0.70 – 0.90 There is strong correlation (High)0.90 – 1.00 There is very strong correlation (Very high) Looking at the score r = 0.909 that the score approximately between 0.90 – 1.00 xyis very strong correlation or high correlation or it means there is significant correlation between variable X and variable Y.

2. The writer used the interpretation with table of value “r” : df = N – nr = 65 – 2

  Looking at the table of significance of 5% in r table = 0.250, and 1% = on the table of significance of 5% is bigger than 0.325 because rr (0.909 > xytable 0.250), so on the table degree of significance of 5% the null hypothesis (Hо) is rejected but the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted. From the calculation of estimation above, it concludes that there is very strong correlation between students’ Intelligence Quotient and their achievementin learning English, and hypothesis of the research is accepted.

E. Discussion

  In this research, the degree of significance 5% is0.250 and the degree of significance 1% is 0.325. So it means the hypothesis r is o bigger than r (0.909 > 0.250 < 0.325).t The result of hypothesis is: alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted and the null hypothesis (Hо) is rejected.

CHAPTER V CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTION A. Conclusion Based on the research analysis, the writer concludes that the null

  It can be seen from the result of r o is 0.90 with the degree of freedom (df) is 63. The result of r on the table of the degree of significance 5% = 0.250 t and in 1% = 0.325.

B. Suggestion

  IQ test is really necessary, because from the result teacher will know the general ability of a child and can decide what a proper treatmentthat should be given to him. Lia : “Would you like to accompany me to go to the library?”Sarah : “sure, why not.”The underlined expression describes… a.
