In the experimental class, the students received learning recount writing using précis-writing; while in the control class, the students received training of recount writing using conventional teaching. The data were collected through recount writing tests before and after the treatment. In order to see if précis-writing improved students recount writing, paired-samples t-test was conducted to students? pretest and posttest scores in the experimental class.
