Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk membandingkan nilai-nilai antara siswa FID dan FD dalam memahami sebuah teks bacaan. Desain penelitian ini adalah Ex Post Facto yang terfokus dalam menemukan perbedaan antara variabel independen dan dependen yang melibatkan satu kelas penelitian beranggotakan 34 siswa. Hasil perhitungan menunjukkan bahwa Sig. (2-tailed) adalah 0.000, karena nilai rata-rata siswa independen adalah 72,38 dan nilai rata-rata siswa dependen adalah 56,56. Ini berarti bahwa adanya perbedaan yang signifikan antara siswa independen dan siswa dependen sejak Sig. (2-tailed) <α (p <0,05, p = 0,000). Field-independent students lebih baik dibandingkan dengan field-dependent students dalam memahami sebuah teks bacaan.

The objective of the research is to compare between FID and FD students in reading comprehension achievement. The design of this research is Ex Post Facto which concerns in finding the difference between independent and dependent variables involving one class numbering of 34 students. The result show that the Sig. (2-tailed) was 0.000, since the mean score in field-independent students is 72.38 and the mean score of field-dependent student is 56.56. It means that the difference of sudents score in field-independent group is significantly difference since Sig. (2-tailed) < α (p < 0.05; p = 0.000).
