Pengaruh model pembelajaran levels of inquiry terhadap kemampuan berpikir kritis siswa

Intan Rasyta Puspa Lestari, Iyon Suyana, Dedi Sasmita


This research is motivated by the increasingly rapid progress of the times towards the 21st century. Model Levels of Inquiry helps students practice critical thinking skills, but due to environmental differences, it is difficult for students to think critically as they should. The author also wants to analyze the steps of learning model Level of Inquiry between Interactive Demonstration and Inquiry Laboratory media PhET Simulation on students' Critical Thinking Ability. The method used in this research is quantitative by means of an experiment. The population of this study were 11th grade high school students at SMA Negeri 1 Cimahi, while the sample in this study were 60 students in two classes. The instruments used are lesson plans, Learning Implementation Sheets and Thinking Ability Test Sheets. The tests carried out on the research were T-test and N-Gain. The results showed that the two learning steps had an effect on increasing students' critical thinking skills with a large score of 53.81 in the Interactive Demonstration and 67.23 in the Inquiry Laboratory. Model Levels of Inquiry improves students' critical thinking skills, this can be seen from the results of the T test conducted with equal variances assumed sig level. (2 tailed) of 0.01<0.05.
