Abstract


The brain is divided into two nearly symmetrical halves, the right and the left hemisphere. Left hemisphere handles all of analytical, logical matters, and language skill. On the contrary, the art objects such as music, imagination, and colors handled by the right one. This research investigated whether there is significant difference between right hemisphere dominance students and left one in multiple choice of English test. The researcher used ex-post facto research. The population is 294 of first grade students. Simple random sampling technique used to select 40 students (20 right hemisphere dominance students and 20 left one). In gaining the data, three instruments have been used namely questionnaire, test, and documentation. The data were analyzed by using independent t-test. The result revealed that there is significant difference between right hemisphere dominance students and left one at the first grade MAN 2 of Pamekasan in multiple choice of English test (2.16 > 2.03; Significance level 5%, df = 35). Left brain dominance students are better in multiple choice of English test because language skill is placed on left hemisphere.
