Abstract

Existing learning has not fully facilitated 4C (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity) skills and there are obstacles for students to encounter in studying biology, especially the material about plant tissue. It happens due to various limitations in achieving basic competency skills. One of the learning approaches that can be used to support 4C skills is the STEM approach which is supported by student worksheets (SW) to guide the learning process. The purpose of this study was to measure the effectiveness of STEM-based SW to train students' creative thinking skills. The research method used is descriptive quantitative and qualitative with one group pre-test and post-test design. The research subjects were 21 students of XI grades at SMAK St.Hendrikus. Data analysis of the N-Gain test of creative thinking skills obtained an average N-gain of 0.7 with a medium category. The N-Gain analysis of creative thinking skills using the T-Test with a sig. (2-tailed) value of 0.000 indicates that STEM-based worksheets are effective in training students' creative thinking skills.

Abstract

The development and use of diagnostic tests in the form of multiple choice four levels in biology learning are still lacking. This study aims to develop a valid and reliable four-tier multiple-choice test instrument to identify the conception profile of high school students on the concept of transport across membranes. The research method is in the form of development research by adapting the Kilic and Saglam models which consist of three stages, namely defining content, obtaining information on student misunderstandings, and developing tests. The research instruments used were validation sheets, test instruments, and interview sheets. Descriptive statistical analysis techniques were used to analyze the data in this study. The results showed that 15 items developed were declared valid and the reliability coefficient of the test was 0.82, including the very reliable category. Thus, it can be concluded that the four-tier multiple-choice test instrument developed has met the validity and reliability requirements to identify the conception profile of high school students about the concept of transport across membranes. The four-tier multiple-choice test developed can be used by high school teachers as an accurate test to identify the conception profile of their students because it can distinguish between students who understand the concept, do not understand the concept, or who experience misconceptions about the concept of transport across membranes.

Abstract

This research focuses on discussing the learning and understanding of the concepts of science in inclusive students at one of the State Junior High Schools in Malang with questionnaire methods, interviews, and documentation. The subjects used in this research were 2 source teachers, 2 special companion teachers (GPK), 25 regular students from class VIIIB, and 14 students with special needs. The learning system, especially with the topic of global warming in the inclusive school, is not yet fully optimal because the learning process is dominated by teachers using the lecture method. The level of understanding of the concept of regular students falls into the good category up to the cognitive domain C4. Meanwhile, the average student with special needs is better able to understand the concept by giving examples in the cognitive domain of C2. The low level of understanding of students' concepts, especially students with special needs, is due to the learning system which is more dominated by teachers in the classroom, the unavailability of learning media for students with special needs in understanding each concept and the number of special companion teachers (GPK) for students who need them which is still limited.
