The Influence of Constructivism Learning Model on Students' Knowledge Competencies in Biology Learning at MTSS Nurul Haq Semurup

Fadhli Eriza, M Chatri


The purpose of this study was to determine the knowledge competency of students in biology learning at MGTsS Nurul Haq. This research was conducted in April 1919. This type of research is quasi-experimental research.This type of research is quasi-experimental research. The population in this study were all eighth grade students of MTs Nurul haq Semurup 2018/2019 Academic Year consisting of three classes namely class VIIIA, VIII B and VIII C. The sample used in this study was class VIII students consisting of two classes namely class VIII A, VIII B, researchers took samples through purposive sampling technique. The instruments used were tests. Data analysis was performed using the t test. The findings show that there is a significant difference between the biology competencies of students in the experimental class and the control class, where the biological competence of students in the experimental class is higher than in the control class. The average value of biological competence of students in the experimental class was 83 and in the control class 76.5. So, it can be concluded that biology learning by using the Learning Model Constructivism assisted by mind map can improve student competence in aspects of knowledge.
