PENGEMBANGAN INSTRUMEN TES KEMAMPUAN PEMECAHAN MASALAH MATEMATIS SISWA

Sufyani Prabawanto

Abstract


Pemecahan masalah matematis adalah bagian yang tidak terpisahkan dari proses pembelajaran matematika. Kajian ini bertujuan untuk mengembangkan istrumen tes kemampuan pemecahan masalah matematis siswa. Dengan demikian, kajian ini diawali dengan pengungkapan variabel-variabel yang terlibat dalam pemecahan masalah matematis dan selanjutnya pengembangan isntrumen tes untuk mengukur kemampuan pemecahan masalah matematis siswa. Pengembangan istrumen ini didasarkan pada sebuah kerangka kerja yang terdiri dari empat domain, yaitu resources, heuristic, control, dan belief system. Hasil kajian ini adalah: (1) penalaran, pengambilan keputusan, berpikir kritis, dan berpikir kreatif merupakan bagian yang tidak terpisahkan dari pemecahan masalah matematis; (2) pemecahan masalah matemaatis dapat ditinjau berdasarkan strukturnya, berdasarkan banyaknya langkah esensial yang diperlukan untuk mencapai solusi, berdasarkan orientasinya, dan berdasarkan penyajiannya.

 

Mathematical problem solving is an inseparable part of the process of learning mathematics. This study aims to develop test instruments for students' mathematical problem solving abilities. Thus, this study begins with the disclosure of the variables involved in solving mathematical problems and then developing test instruments to measure students' mathematical problem solving abilities. The development of this instrument is based on a framework consisting of four domains, namely resources, heuristics, control, and belief systems. The results of this study are: (1) reasoning, decision making, critical thinking, and creative thinking are an inseparable part of mathematical problem solving; (2) solving the problem of the congregation can be reviewed based on its structure, based on the number of essential steps needed to reach a solution, based on its orientation, and based on its presentation.
