The data analyzing procedure uses t-test  and results the following output. The result of ttest is 3,96 and ttable  is 2,06. It means that tcount > ttable with the criterion of ttest is Ha is accepted if tcount  > ttable. So, there is any difference result of students’ writing ability using YouTube Downloaded Video and Serial Pictures Media.
