Nur Indri Rahayu, Adang Suherman, Bambang Abdul Jabar


The aim of this research was to test the effectiveness of TPSR and PBL in physical education to increase student’s personal and social responsibility. This is quasi experimental research with pretest posttest control group design, Sample of this research were senior high school as many as 122 student’s. The instrument used was an adaptation of Tool for Assessing Responsibility-Based Education (TARE) Observation, while the data analysis using paired sample t-test and independent sample t-test. The results showed there was significant effect of hybridizing TPSR and PBL in enhancing student’s personal and social responsibility. Hybridizing TPSR and PBL is effective to increase student’s personal and social responsibility in physical education. Next, more in-depth research is required by involving a random sampling with larger sample size or by using another scientific learning approach such as inquiry or project based learning.
