Jerika Seba, Yuni Ahda, Linda Advinda


Curriculum is an educational response to societies’ and nations’ needs in developing young generation. The curriculum gives a significant contribution to bring the development process of students’ potential in learning into reality. Learning of Science (IPA) emphasizes on the ability to do scientific inquiry to raise cognitive, affective, and communicative skills. IPA includes four main elements: attitude, process, product, and application. IPA learning process is expected to raise those four elements so that students can experience the whole learning process, and it can be used to solve life’s problems.  It can be reached by applying one learning model, that is ‘guided inquiry learning model’. The learning process cannot also apart from learning materials. One of the materials is student work sheet, which is able to improve students’ skill process. The aim of the research was to develop student work sheet based guided inquiry for MTs students grade VII and to validate its criteria. The research was a development research using Plomp model. The Validity of student work sheet based guided inquiry was obtained from the result of expert validity sheets done by four experts. The result of this research showed that in didactic aspect got 77,08% with the criteria was valid, construct aspect got 90% with very valid criteria, technical aspect got 85,93% with the criteria was very valid, and the average of these three aspects got 84,33% with the criteria was very valid. Student work sheet based guided inquiry was successful to be developed by validity criteria, which was very valid. Then, it is expected that it can be a qualified and innovative learning material to help improve students’ learning competence.
