Abstract

This study aimed to construct a multiple-choice conceptual knowledge test for high school in fluid subject matter according to standard qualification of a good test based on validity, reliability, difficulty index, discrimination index, and effectiveness distractor..The method of this study is Research and Development by using Borg and Gall step. The population of this study was all the students grade XII Senior High School in Medan, North Sumatera academic 2018/2019. The sample selection by stratified random sampling based on the public and private school, implementation of curriculum 2013, and accreditation. Data analysis technique used is descriptive qualitative and quantitative techniques. Qualitative data analysis includes material, construction and language while quantitative data analysis determined validity, reliability, difficulty index, discrimination index, and effectiveness of distractor. Step of this study consists of preliminary studies, research planning, design development, experts judgment, revision of expert judgment, a small group trials, revisions of small group trials, large group trials, revisions of large group trials. Furthermore, it obtained an instrument test of conceptual knowledge on Fluid in Senior High School that meets the standard test instruments.
