It began in the first week of March and ended in the last May 2012. The students learnt the descriptive text, which was one of materials taught for the second semester students in Diploma III in Taxation Study Program.

The result implied that there was improvement for both experimental and control group, but there was a significant improvement on variance for experimental group. However, there was improvement on variance of control group but it was lower than that of experimental group. After the questionnaire was analyzed, the result showed that 34% of the students strongly agreed with the implementation of the TPSS, 55% of the students agreed, 10% was neutral and only 1% of the students disagreed.
