# Penerapan Model Pembelajaran Problem Based Learning Menggunakan Strategi Pair Checks untuk Meningkatkan Hasil Belajar Siswa di MAN 2 Boyolali

### Abstract

*The result of initial observation conducted in MAN 2 Boyolali showed that the studentsâ€™ learning outcomes on physics subject was still low, so another learning model and strategy are needed, one of them is by innovative cooperation to improve the studentsâ€™ learning result. Therefore, a learning model of Problem Based Learning is applied using Pair Checks strategy which has big possibility to improve the studentsâ€™ learning outcomes**. **This study aims at analyzing the improvement of the studentsâ€™ cognitive learning outcomes after using Problem Based Learning model with Pair Checks strategy.* *The study was a quantitative research with experiment method. The population were the students of X IPA MAN 2 Boyolali, the samples were conducted using simple random sampling, with the students from X IPA 1 as the experiment group and the students from X IPA 2 as the control group**. **The method of data collection were test**, observation, and **questionnaire**. **The result shows that the improvement of the studentsâ€™ cognitive learning outcomes was earned N-gain value from experiment group is 0.59, which belongs to middle criterion, while the control group is 0.29, which belongs to low criterion. The average achievement of affective learning outcomes **on t**he experiment group reachs 75%, which belongs to good criterion, while the control group reachs 59%, which belongs to good enough criterion. The average achievement of psychomotor learning outcomes on the experiment group reachs 74%, which belongs to good criterion, while the control group reachs 55%, which belongs to less good criterion**. **The analysis result shows that the implementation of Problem Based Learning model using Pair Checks strategy obtains a good response with percentage of 71%.** **It* *can be concluded that the studentsâ€™ cognitive learning result gets significant improvement after applying the learning model of Problem Based Learning using Pair Checks strategy**.*
