Abstract

The purpose of the research is to analyze the use of interactive research method applications to support student in preparing their research proposals. The method used is a 10-step development research. The results showed that the application design was declared valid content of 0.83. Expert assessment is declared reliable based on the ICC value of 0.630. The readability test got the results of the application getting a score of 159 with readability criteria. The practicality test of using the application found that 79.8% of respondents agreed that it was in the practical category. The final product in the form of the I-RM Application is distributed through the Play Store. The I-RM application has the advantage that it is practical to use, can store data and compile it into a final project proposal sequence. However, the I-RM application also has drawbacks, namely the data storage is still in local storage, the data cannot be moved or opened via other devices. Suggestions from the researchers are that further development can be carried out to overcome the shortcomings of the currently developed I-RM application and can be tested directly for use in lectures with a longer time span.
