The dictionary of taxation accounting terms plays an important role for vocational students as an independent learning tool as it provides a specific list of vocabulary to support their study compared to a general dictionary. This learning media was developed based on the adaptation of the ADDIE Model (E. Forest, 2014). The implementation phase was carried out using an experimental research method applied to students majoring in Taxation Accounting. Prior to and following the use of independent learning media in the learning process, quantitative data were gathered from the results of pre-test and post-test. The integrated media is a dictionary of tax accounting terms that is equipped with an online self-evaluation feature through Quizizz application. To determine the effect of using a dictionary on improving student achievement, the results of the pre-test and post-test assessments were analyzed using the SPSS statistical program. The One-Sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test was used to test the normality of the pre- and post-test results, and the paired sample t-test was used to determine whether there was a significant difference in the students' performance before and after the use of the dictionary. Meanwhile, scale-type questions from an online survey in the form of a google form were used to collect qualitative data and the results were analyzed to determine student perceptions of learning academic reading and competencies. The questionnaire responses highlight that students had some difficulty comprehending academic texts on taxation and accounting due to the complex vocabulary. According to statistical analysis, the dictionary combined with interactive practice via the digital platform Quizizz had a positive impact on student achievement.
