Abstract

Students do their reading by using various strategies that they need to acquire information and knowledge from the reading passage. It is also applicable for the Health Analyst Department students who need reading strategies to acquire knowledge according to their specific needs. They need to be able to comprehend their target texts. The two previous researchers had studied the relationship of students’ reading achievement or proficiency and three reading strategies in comprehending their academic reading materials with Mokhtari and Sheorey’ (2002) survey of reading strategies (SORS) and reading comprehension test (RCT). The one previous researcher had studied the research of correlation between twelve students’ reading strategies and reading comprehension with reading strategies inventory (adopted from Oxford (1989) SILL version 7.0) and reading comprehension test (RCT). This research aimed to identify the Health Analyst Department students’ reading strategies and reading comprehension achievement as well as to correlate their reading strategies to reading comprehension. This research employed the descriptive case study by using mixed method. The research subjects are the Health Analyst Department students. This research also utilized Mokhtari and Sheorey’ (2002) survey of reading strategies (SORS) and reading comprehension test (RCT) as the research instruments. All research data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics, linear regression and Pearson’s Product Moment correlation test. The data analysis also presents that there are different correlation coefficients among three reading strategies. The students frequently utilized the problem solving reading strategies in comprehending their target texts. The correlation coefficient of support reading strategies is greater than the two others. Those results give indications which the students’ choices of reading strategies do not always give the better reading comprehension. The students’ reading strategies have significant positive correlation to reading comprehension with regard to the students’ comprehending their target texts. The writer recommends that future researchers expand the research of reading strategies in different perspectives such as class action research, class instructions, the relationship of reading strategies and writing strategies.
