Abstract

Biotechnology includes topic about gene and nuclear cloning is a very challenging subject to study at high school. Without proper Media aid, misconception will more likely to occur among students. The use of Inquiry-based Interactive Multimedia was expected to reduce the misconception about cloning process since it is visualized more clearly. This study was aimed to measure slope misconception of student and to analyze the application of Inquiry-based Interactive Multimedia to minimize student misconception on Biotechnology subject. The research was conducted at MAN 8 Jakarta on May 2012 using a quasi experimental method and pretest-posttest control group design. A total of 40 science students were taken equally from IPA 1 and IPA 2 classes at grade 10 to become experimental and control groups. They were selected by simple random sampling. A test of multiple choice questions with five alternative answers was used as the study instrument. To detect for any misconception, the test result was measured by Certainty of Response Index (CRI). Using this technique, there were 8 % misconception found on the pre-test and 7% on the post-test. As the conclusion, the use of Inquiry-based Interactive Multimedia was effective to minimize student misconception on Biotechnology subject.

The improvement may occur using Two Stay Two Stray Technique of Cooperative Learning Model since students are encouraged to learn together and help each other in groups. The research aimed to determine the effect of Two Stay Two Stray (TSTS) technique of Cooperative Learning Model on Students’ Biology Learning Outcomes on the ecosystem topic. This research was carried out at SMAN 2 Tangerang on May to June 2012 using a quasi-experimental method. Two science classes at grade 10 were selected by purposive sampling technique, class X-7 as the experimental group and class X-8 as the control group. An overall of 36 students of each class was selected by simple random sampling. Data obtained by using instruments of multiple choice question test and affective Attitude Scale. The result of Normality testing of Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and homogeneity testing of F-test showed a normal distribution and homogenous data. The average Biology study result of experimental group was 79.1 while of control group was 74.3. Based on the result, it can be concluded that Two Stay Two Stray (TSTS) technique of Cooperative Learning Model affected Students’ Biology Learning Outcomes.
