Summary : After conducting the experiment with PBL, the researcher found that sample students had the average score increasingly, from 16 to 20.9. The learning achievement of the sample in the course of IS in English was increasing after instruction of PBL at the significance level of 0.01. T value from the table at df 9 equals 2.821.
