Abstract

Argumentation skill is essential academic skills in comprehensive learning in the 21st century for developing, evaluating and validating knowledge. Argumentation skills are ability to criticize an idea or information so that the information was obtained correctly by connecting data and information to produce strong and precise ideas. This research aimed to analyze argumentation skills of students at Surakarta Senior High School in biology learning. The research subjects were the twelfth-grade students of public senior high schools in Surakarta. The data collection was conducted online with Edmodo media. The results showed that 17.8% were still at level one, where the arguments issued by students only contained a simple claim, and for the level two 3.3% were in which the arguments issued by students were supported by data without warranting and backing document. The results of the initial ability test showed that the rebuttal aspect had not developed. The result indicates that the students’ argumentation skills in Surakarta Senior High School were still quite low.
