Product Moment Correlation is one of technique that usually used to find out the significance of the correlation between two variables. There are two main variables in this research. Students Motivation as independent variable (variable X) and reading comprehension as dependent variable (variable Y). The data were collected through test (reading comprehension test) and questionnaires of reading motivation. From the calculation by using Pearson’s Product Moment formula, it is obtained that the value of “r” product moment (r xy) or “r” observation (r o ) is 0,89. The degree of freedom (df) is 25. The degree of significance 5% is 0.396, and the degree of significance 1% is 0.505. So it means that the hypothesis r o is bigger than r t (0.89 > 0.396 and 0.89 < 0.505). The result of hypothesis of this research is: alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted and the null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected, so it means there is strong correlation between students‟ motivation and reading comprehension.
