Abstract
Currently, scientific literacy became one of the learning outcomes of science education. Through scientific literacy skills, students can overcame any problems of science. This study aimed to describe the student's scientific literacy skills based on program classes. Two groups were identified, namely regular eighth-grade students and students who finished school for 2 years only. The scientific literacy tests were adapted from The Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP) of 2013 because the students were on grade 8. The data were collected by using tests, interviews and observations. The findings indicated that the students in the accelerated class had the scientific reasoning and the problem solving ability of the scientific literacy. Meanwhile the students who were in the regular class mastered the scientific literacy skills in term of scientific reasoning. The results of this study can be used as a reasoning by the teacher, researcher, and decision makers that the scientific literacy abilities of students still need to be improved.
