THE ANALYSIS OF PROBLEM BASED LEARNING WITH FIELD TRIP METHOD IN IMPROVING STUDENTS' LEARNING OUTCOMES IN PAYA DUA
This study aims to describe the increase in students’ learning outcomes through the use of Problem Based Learning with field trip method. The research sample consisted of 30 students in class III in science learning on plant propagation material by using observing experiments, observing the growth and development of mung beans into plants that germinate and reproducing into mung bean plants at Paya Dua Public Elementary School. This research is a qualitative descriptive research. The data collection techniques employed was tests that were analyzed by using descriptive statistics. The results of this study indicated that the average of the students’ learning outcomes on plant propagation material before using the problem-based learning model with the field trip method was 71.8 with the highest score of 85 and the lowest score of 45. A total of 23 students did not complete the test score and only 7 students passed whose scored above the minimum completeness criteria for science learning. While the average score of students in science learning on plant propagation material after applying the problem-based learning model using the field trip method was 91.83 in which the highest score was 100, and the lowest was 65. The total of completeness percentage was 92%, in which 28 students with complete criteria and 2 students did not complete.
