Abstract

Students’ creativity and High-Order thinking skills involved in the enrollment of surface chemistry course was examined in this study. The laboratory activity worksheet developed in previous research done by Yonata et al (2017) was used to guide student activity. Meanwhile, the students’ creativity was assessed through laboratory report. The instruments used to obtain data on students’ high-order thinking have been developed also in previous research by Yonata, et al (2017). High-order thinking skill refers to the revised version of Bloom taxonomy with C4, C5, and C6 level. The high-order thinking test is an essay test in which a phenomenon is presented and the students’ performance was determined by the variables (C5), problem formulation (C4), hypothesis (C6), experimental procedure (C6), experimental analysis (C4), and conclusion (C5). The test was taken by individual students before and after the laboratory activities. From the results of the study, it was obtained come data showing that, in the pretest, there were still 61% of students who mastered high-order thinking skills while, in the posttest, 100% of the students completed the skills. Meanwhile, the result of the students’ creativity shows that every student had different procedure to conduct experiment shown in the posttest.
