Abstract

The background of this study is the weakness of higher-order thinking skill of elementary education major students. Thus, we need a suitable learning model used to improve the higher-order thinking skill of elementary education major students. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of problem-based learning, problem-solving and problem-posing in improving the higher-order thinking skill of students of elementary education major. This research uses a factorial design. The sample used in this study is a random sampling technique. The sample includes three classes of fifth-semester students. Three classes apply different learning models. The first class uses a problem-based learning model, the second class uses the problem-solving model and the third class uses the problem posing model. The sample used in this study is 117 students. The result shows that the higher-order thinking skill of students with problem-based learning has a significant difference compared to those with problem posing, but it is not significant as students with problem-solving. This research shows that problem-based learning is the most effective model in improving the ability of higher-order thinking skill of elementary education students compared with problem-solving and problem posing. This study implies that the lecturers of elementary education major can improve the higher-order thinking skill of related students by using problem-based learning.
