DEVELOPING ASSESSMENT AS LEARNING TO IMPROVE THE STUDENTS COMPETENCIES IN SCIENCE COMPETENCY
The objective of this research is to develop assessment as learning (model-AaL) model for improving competency of senior high school students in science subject. The study fits to the research and development (R & D) and following up by Focus Group Discussion (FGD), it consisted of two phases by namely research and development. The former included preliminary research, study of the research results, analysis of the model components, and the arrangement of model prototype. The validation analysis model was comprised by experts and practitioners, teacher training for using the model, limited and extended model experimentations accompanied with evaluation. The subjects of the research were science teachers and Grade XI senior High Schools students of competencies in Science Competency. Data was obtained by through in-depth interview, questionnaire, observation, and test. Data was analyzed by using the qualitative approach descriptive analysis technique and quantitative approach with analysis techniques of repeating measurement analysis and samples-test paired. The results shown that:(1) the model-AaL consisted of six components, namely: objective, structured task, self-assessment, peer assessment, observation on student’s activities, and feedback; and (2) the model-AaL can effectively improve the students’ of competencies in Science Competency senior High Schools, with a value of p (Sig) < α(0.05).
