Abstract

When carrying out her teaching-practice in SMA Kr Petra 3 Surabaya, the writer made some observations on the results of the first year students’ English grammar tests. From her observation, she found out that they still have problems in constructing correct simple past tense. Being interested in this problem, the writer decided to carry out a study on error analysis of the simple past tense. The purpose of this study is to identify the types of errors according to errors of addition (EA), errors of omission (EO), errors of substitution (ES), and errors of ordering/ wrong order (WO) and to predict the causes of these errors. To get the data, she administers the test twice, the try-out and the real test. After analyzing, classifying, and counting the errors encountered, she finds that the most frequent errors is ES (= 58.2%), the second is EA (= 21.3%), the third is EO (= 10.5), and the last errors is WO (= 10%). From these data, she predicted four causes of errors. They are over-generalization, ignorance of rule restrictions, incomplete application of rules, and false concept hypothesized. Finally, the writer gives some suggestions on how to overcome them.
