Reading is believed as a receptive skill that has an important part in people’s live because by reading the reader will get pleasure and information. Reading is an active process that engages the reader’s thinking in order to get the ideas of the text. Since reading is considered as the important skill, the English teacher should find the appropriate reading materials that can help the students to improve their reading comprehension achievement. There are some reading materials that can be used in teaching reading skill; one of them is animation video. Animation video can be very useful and meaningful in language learning process. It can also be used to stimulate the students’ interest to the material. Besides, animation video helps to represent the text in visual form. It can also make the viewers of the video easy to understand the message delivered by visual clues provided in the video. With those considerations, the use of animation video is hopefully able to improve the students’ reading comprehension achievement. The purpose of this research was to know whether or not there was a significant effect of using animation video on reading comprehension achievement of the tenth grade students of MA AL-Misri Rambipuji. This research design was quasi experimental. It was begun by undertaking homogenity test, deciding the experimental and control groups, giving treatment to the experimental group, giving the same post test to the groups, and the last was analyzing the result of the post test by using t-test. This research was conducted at MA AL-Misri Rambipuji which was chosen because the English teacher never taught reading comprehension by using animation video. Besides, MA AL-Misri Rambipuji has complete facilities that could support the researcher in doing the research, such as: viewers, computers, etc. Based on the result of the homogeneity test, classes X IPS 1 and X IPS 2 were chosen as the experimental and the control groups. The experimental group was treated by using animation video, while the control group was treated by using reading text. The result of the reading post test scores showed that the mean score in the experimental group (74.96 >63.12) was higher compared to the mean score in the control group. Based on the statistical analysis, it was found that the significant value was 0.001 (<0.05) which was lower than 0.05 which means that there was a significant difference between the two groups. In conclusion, the result of data analysis proved that the use of animation video in teaching reading narrative texts significantly affected the students’ reading comprehension achievement at MA Al-Misri Rambipuji. Based on the explanations above, it was concluded that there was a significant effect of using animation video on reading comprehension achievement of the tenth grade students of MA AL-Misri Rambipuji. It is suggested to the English Teacher of MA AL-Misri Rambipuji to also use animation video in teaching learning activity of the tenth grade classes especially for reading activities. It is also suggested to the next researchers to conduct further research dealing with similar problem by using another research design or language skills and different text type.
