rata diambil dari 4 (empat) indikator yaitu kalimat yang menggunakan so, too, either
dan neither. Dengan nilai rata-rata 54,55 atau dalam Tingkat Cukup. Dari hasil data
diatas peneliti telah menyimpulkan bahwa lebih dari 50% siswa mampu
menggunakan Elliptical Construction. Jadi, peneliti dapat menyimpulkan bahwa
siswa kurang memahami dalam menggunakan Elliptical Construction, itu
ditunjukkan dari hasil persentase dimana siswa yang memiliki nilai yang Sangat
Baik hanya 16,17%, hal itu dikarenakan materi Elliptical Construction tidak
