The quantitative data were collected by the pre-test and post-test, while qualitative data were collected by observation, questionnaire, and interview. This research was done from January to June 2012. The result of the research showed that the implementation of Inquiry Based Learning could improve the students’ writing ability including content, organization, vocabulary, grammar and mechanics. They could also write in appropriate stages including prewriting (outlining), writing, and rewriting. By comparing the pre-test score and the post-test score, there was an improvement in writing elements. Their mean score of the pre-test was 72.04, while their mean score of the post-test 1 was 75.92, and their mean score of the post-test 2 was 79.60.
