The results showed that t[subscript calculate]>t[subscript table] or 3,813> 2,093 or t value is higher than t table. It means that parents' involvement significantly influences children's motivation. The result of the t-test also indicated that t[subscript calculate] value for parents' involvement (X) was 3,601.
