Abstract
This research aims to assess the implementation of collaborative inquiry-based in practical of General Biology and its impact on students’ understanding. The method used in this study is a descriptive method with a quantitative approach. The population of this study was 110 undergraduate students at the first-year of Biology Education of UIN STS Jambi, while the number of samples was 50 students taken by simple random sampling technique. The implementation of the strategy was evaluated using observation and questionnaire. Furthermore, the impact of the collaborative inquiry-based on students’ understanding was measured quantitatively using an instrument test. Overall, the implementation of the practical class using collaborative inquiry-based has met a very good category, indicating all the syntax of the inquiry approach has implemented during the teaching process. Unexpectedly, students’ understanding test found only a few of students met the satisfactory grade results, suggesting further improvements for the media used in the collaborative inquiry-based approach.
