Application of Project Based Learning Model to Increase Students Physics Learning Outcomes and Science Process Skills

Adrianus Amsikan


This study aims to determine whether there is an increase in learning outcomes of physics and science process skills; knowing the magnitude of the increase in physics learning outcomes; knowing the magnitude of the increase in students' science process skills with the PjBL learning model. This classroom action research was conducted in two cycles to 34 students of class X-MIPA3 SMA Negeri 1 SoE. The results showed that the application of the PjBL learning model to the subject matter of business and energy could improve students' learning outcomes of physics and science process skills; the increase in average physics learning outcomes before the action was 54.3; In the first cycle, the gain-test value obtained was 0.33 in the medium category. In the second cycle, the gain-test value obtained was 0.65 in the medium category. This shows that there is an increase in learning outcomes from cycle I to cycle II; cycle I the average value of science process skills is 85.6 with good category and cycle II the average value of science process skills is 88.7 with very good category. This shows that there is an increase in students' science process skills from cycle I to cycle II.
