The result showed that when the students were treated by guided writing the mean of the result was 80.08 meanwhile when the students were0 treated by conventional writing skill was 76.77. Strengthened by the descriptive analysis, it was found that the mean score of writing competency tests for the students who treated by using guided writing strategy was 80.76 and the mean score of writing competency treated by using conventional writing strategy was 76.76. From the mean score finding, it can be concluded that according to learning strategy, the group of students treated by using guided writing strategy was better than the students treated by using conventional writing strategy.
