Dalam studi ini dikembangkan model integrasi atribut asesmen formatif (IAAF) dalam pembelajaran Biologi Sel untuk mengembangkan kemampuan penalaran dan berpikir analitik mahasiswa calon guru Biologi. Atribut asesmen formatif yang diintegrasikan adalah collaboration, self-assessment, peer-assessment, dan feedback & learning progression. Model yang dikembangkan mencakup pembelajaran interaktif, pembuatan bagan konsep, dan reviu artikel jurnal internasional. Dimensi yang diukur dalam studi ini adalah perkembangan kemampuan mahasiswa membuat bagan konsep, kemampuan mahasiswa melakukan reviu artikel, dan kemampuan penalaran dan berpikir analitik mahasiswa. Hasil studi mengindikasikan bahwa Model IAAF dapat mengembangkan kemampuan penalaran dan berpikir analitik mahasiswa.


In this study developed a model of integration of formative assessment attributes (IAAF) in Cell Biology learning to develop reasoning skills and analytical thinking Biology student teachers. Attributes of formative assessment that  integrated is collaboration, self-assessment, peer-assessment, and feedback & learning progression. The model developed includes interactive learning, graphing concepts, and review articles of international journal. Dimensions measured in this study is the development of students’ ability to make a chart of concept, the ability of student conduct review of articles, and the ability to reason and think analytically students. The study results indicate that the IAAF model can develop reasoning skills and analytic thinking students.
