The development of language learning especially English is greatly supported by the use of technology in classroom. One of the variety of technologies that can be implemented in teaching learning activity is computer, which is known as Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL). Concerning with writing as one of English skills that many students may face difficulties, it must be solved with an innovative way of teaching such as using CALL in teaching writing. In this research, the use of CALL referred to the use of Webquest. This research was conducted to investigate the effect of Using Computer Assisted Language Learninng (CALL) on the Elevent Grade Students’ Writing Achievement of MAN Jember 1 in the 2010/2011 academic year. The populations of this research were class XI students of MAN Jember 1 in the 2010/2011academic year. The research respondents were determined by cluster random sampling through a lottery. The total number of the respondents were 79 students; 40 students of class XI IPA 3 as the experimental group that taught by CALL within Webquest on their writing Class and 39 students of class XI IPA4 as the control group that taught by lecturing and question-answer method. The primary data of this research were collected from the students’ scores of writing test, while the supporting data were gained through interview and documentation. The primary data were collected from the post test to make comparison between the two groups after treatment, and analyzed by using Independent sample T-Test on SPSS (Statistical Package of Social Science). Based on the calculation, the mean score of the experimental group was higher than that of the mean score of the control group (77.00 > 63.23). The value of sig column is 0.000 and this value is lower than 0.05. It means that the null hypothesis (H0) formulated: “there is no significant effect of using Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) on the elevent grade students’ writing achievement of MAN Jember 1 in the 2010/2011 academic year” was rejected. Thus the alternative hypothesis: “there is significant effect of using Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) on the elevent grade students’ writing achievement of MAN Jember 1 in the 2010/2011 academic year” was accepted. It also happened to the specific hypothesis covers five indicators of writing. They are grammar, vocabulary, mechanic, fluency, and organization. Those specific hypothesis was accepted because all of the significant value was lower than 0.05. It indicated that there was a significant mean difference between the experimental group and the control group. The research results proved that there was a significant effect of using Computer Assisted Language Learninng (CALL) on the elevent grade students’ writing achievement of MAN Jember 1 in the 2010/2011 academic year. Therefore, it is recommended to the English teacher to apply Computer Assisted Language Learninng (CALL) to improve students’ writing achievement.
