Abstract

This study aims to determine the ability of students in inquiry learning to improve students' scientific process skills. This research involves 7th semester students of a university in Bandung who took biotechnology course with concentration on DNA isolation in 2016. The research method used in this research is experimental with observation sheets, questionnaires, and tests were used as data collection instruments. From both the control class and the experimental class, significant difference of in terms of students’ scientific skills are identified.The observation sheet shows the difference of the student’s knowledge level which has the average value of 31,97%, the result of student questionnaire is 18, 65%, and result. Aspects of the process of scientific processes that assess the ability to make observations, application of concepts, experimental design, interpretation, prediction, questioning, formulation of hypotheses, experiments, use of tools, application of concepts and communicate with some students who still have trouble laboratory practicum. Further research should be developed and conducted on students from different study programs.
