Abstract


The lowest of Science Process Skills is one of problem in education. It was caused by the lack of awareness of lecturers to facilitate students to conducting activities to develop the skills of students at the Sulawesi Barat University. This study aims to proof at the science process skills of students. The methods used qualitative research approach to engineering tests, interviews, and questionnaires. Subject of the study consisted of 47 biology education student, Math and Science Faculty in Sulawesi Barat University. Based on the analysis of data was obtained the test results science process skills in solving problems which refers to indicators of process skills Science, showed that students' ability to answer to the percentage identified with control variables as much as 51%, definition operational as much as 57%, test hypotheses as much as 45%, designing investigations as 60%, and graphs with data interpretation as much as 44%. The results of the analysis in accordance with the results of interviews conducted with students, in which they reveal that recognize science process skills but indicators of Science Process Skills have not understood the term as well as the working process. Based on the analysis, it could be concluded that the science process skills of students it was still had been low.
