Experiment Learning Method Based on Inquiry to Increase Understanding of Generic Science Concepts and Skills of Primary School Students in Grade 5 (five)
Abstract. This research aims tocarried out using the match only pretest-posttest control group method in grade 5 elementary school students. The data was collected using pre and post tests related to generic science understanding and skills and also using a questionnaire to determine student responses to the use of inquiry methods. The results showed that the test results (N-gains) conceptual understanding were 56.40% for the experimental group with the moderate category and 28.28% for the control group with the low category. The highest percentage of generic science skills occurred in the experimental group on direct observation indicators around 87.50% with a high category. The low percentage of generic science skills in the experimental class in the logic framework indicator is around 33.54% with a low category. While the highest percentage of generic science skills occurred in the group on direct observation indicators around 40.63% with the medium category. The low percentage of generic science control class skills on logic frame indicators is around 14.38% with low categories. Students give a positive response to the implementation of inquiry learning methods. In conclusion, the implementation of learning using the inquiry method can significantly increase student understanding and generic science skills.
