Abstract
This study aimed to determine the effect of the application of project-based learning and problem-based learning to the students’ High Order Thinking Skills in the fifth semester of biology education undergraduate students in FMIPA UNIMED. This study used a quasi-experimental method with one dependent variable and a study sample of 3 (three) classes determined by random class. Regular class C got treatment for the application of project-based learning, Extension class A got the treatment of application of problem-based learning, Extension class B (control) got direct learning treatment. The research instrument was a list of description questions to test students’ high-level thinking skills. Data analysis techniques used covariate analysis (ANACOVA) at a significant level of α = 0.05 with SPSS 23 for Windows. The results showed that there was a significant effect among project-based learning (88.89 ± 2,592), problem-based learning (85.74 ± 2,115) and direct instruction learning (84.45 ± 2,154) to high order thinking skills with a value of F = 24,150, P = 0,000. The results of this study stated that the application of project-based learning can improve students' high order thinking skills.
