Abstract

Research on the development of integrated science instruction assessment is an attempt to overcome the problems in science learning assessment in Junior High School. Rate the former tend to simply measure cognitive ability, so that teachers rarely pay attention to ratings on creativity and scientific attitude of students. Curriculum 2013 requires a paradigm shift  in  the  teachers  manage  learning,  including  assessment.  This  research  aims  to;  (1) produce integrated science instruction assessment that has been validated theoretically and empirically (2) produce integrated science assessment practical instruction through the feasibility test in science learning class (3) to get the measure of creativity and scientific attitude of learners using instruments developed. This research is a development that adapt the model Borg and Gall (1983). Research conducted at several junior high school in Java. Design of a test carried out twice, limited testing and operational field testing. The instrument used to collect the data consists of: (1) sheet of expert validation, (2) observation sheets science process skills, assessment science process skills based on the worksheet, (3) observation sheets scientific attitude, (4) self-assessment scientific attitude, and (5) an assessment of the scientific attitude among friends. Aiken's Formula V is used to analyze the instrument by the validator.

This research resulted in: (1) integrated science instruction assessment practical through feasibility testing in the classroom science lessons with the following characteristics: (a) the observation sheet form checklist used by teachers to observe the creativity of learners is only at the stage of disengagement, explore and explain, as well as observing the scientific attitude on stage elicit, engage, explore, explain, elaborate and extend (b) creativity is not observed from the behavior of learners assessed by working the worksheet that includes aspects of prediction, communication in writing, inference, interpretation of data and use numbers (c) the self-assessment attitude assessment of scientific and scientific attitudes among learners friends used only at the stage of Evaluate (2) the instrument has been developed fit for use because it meets the content validity by experts and reliability was good value. (3) Results of measurement using observation sheet creativity get a very good category in the aspect of observation, experimentation and communication through presentations and both categories on aspects of communication through discussion, while using the ratings based worksheet to get a good category in all aspects. The results of measuring scientific attitude of learners using observation sheets, self-assessment and peer assessment obtained either category on aspects of curiosity, objective, critical and open-minded.
