ANALYSIS OF NEEDS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LEARNING GAME MEDIA ON CELL RESPIRATION MATERIALS
To find out the appropriate learning media used by a teacher when teaching, it is necessary to do a needs analysis. The rationale for this study was to analyze the needs of students and teachers for learning media for cell respiration. This research is descriptive quantitative research using a questionnaire. The population and sample are 72 grade 12 students and 20 Biology teachers in Wonogiri Regency for the 2021/2022 academic year. Questionnaires were developed from indicators of learning media needs and difficulties in learning cell respiration material. The results of the questionnaire were analyzed using the formula P=F/N, where P is the percentage of student scores; F is the frequency of student scores; and N is the number of students. The results of the study revealed that (1) 70% of the teachers said that cellular respiration is a difficult subject to teach; (2) As many as 75% of teachers said that learning media was the most dominant problem in teaching cell respiration material; (3) As many as 75% of students admit that cellular respiration is difficult to understand; (4) As many as 83% of students chose game learning media to assist in mastering cell respiration material.
