Analysis of Students Creative Problem-Solving Ability in Static Fluids Pilot study

Elma Elma, Achmad Samsudin, Andi Suhandi


Abstract: This study aims to describe the ability of creative problem solving in static fluid materials. The method used in this study is a descriptive method which was carried out at SMAN 4 Luwu, North Sulawesi. The research sample was 36 students. The research data were collected through the provision of creative problem solving tests on static fluid materials given after the learning process was carried out. The data that has been collected is then analyzed using the calculation of the average pretest and posttest and Rasch Analysis. The results of data analysis show that reviewing four indicators, namely fact finding, problem finding, idea finding, solution finding and the highest score is on the fact finding indicator with an average of 67.57 for classes that use creative problem solving. In implementing the creative problem solving learning model, it is necessary to pay attention to the time management allocated so that each implementation can be carried out properly. The creative problem solving learning model can be tested on other materials according to school conditions.


Keywords:  reative problem solving, static fluids, Rasch analysis.


Abstrak: Penelitian ini bertujuan mendeskripsikan kemampuan creative problem solving pada materi fluida statis. Metode yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah metode deskriptif yang dilakukan di SMAN 4 Luwu Sulawesi Utara. Sampel penelitian sebanyak 36 siswa. Data-data penelitian dikumpulkan melalui pemberian tes creative problem solving pada materi fluida statis yang diberikan setelah proses pembelajaran dilakukan. Data yang sudah dikumpulkan selanjutnya dianalisis menggunakan perhitungan rata-rata pretest dan posttest serta Rasch Analysis. Hasil analisis data menunjukkan bahwa meninjau empat indikator yaitu fact finding, problem finding, idea finding, solution finding dan skor yang paling tinggi adalah pada indikator fact finding dengan rata-rata 67,57 untuk kelas yang mengguanakan creative problem solving. Dalam menerapkan model pembelajaran creative problem solving perlu memperhatikan manajemen waktu yang dialokasikan agar setiap pelaksanaan dapat dilaksanakan dengan baik. Model pembelajaran creative problem solving dapat diujicobakan pada materi lain sesuai dengan kondisi sekolah.


Kata kunci: pemecahan masalah secara kreatif, fluida statis, analisis Rasch.
