These scores were given by using analytic method offered by John Anderson. Besidestheresult of the analysis indicated that,two students got below average ability level, one student got average ability level, six students got above average ability level, ten students got very good ability level and one student got excellent ability level. Therefore the writer suggests the following: 1) The English teacher should pay attention to the grammatical aspects such as the use of article, word order and tenses because many errors occurred in those aspects. 2) The English teacher should encourage the students to have sufficient stock of English vocabulary. Some students still faced difficulties dealing with the content and the language use in the generic structure of the text. 3) The English teacher should pay attention to the mechanics aspect such as the punctuations and spelling of the words because some students are still confused how to put the punctuation correctly.
