Abstract


Kajian ini bertujuan mengkaji keberkesanan modul interdisiplin STEM iaitu Malaysian(M)-Bioteknologi-STEM, untuk meningkatkan pencapaian pelajar dalam topik bioteknologi di sekolah menengah harian. Seramai 139 responden daripada sekolah-sekolah yang menawarkan sains tambahan Tingkatan 4 di sekitar Selangor terlibat dalam kajian ini. Keberkesanan modul terhadap peningkatan pencapaian pelajar diuji dengan reka bentuk kuasi-eksperimental dengan ujian pra dan ujian pasca kumpulan kawalan tidak setara. Hasil dapatan kajian dianalisis secara inferensi dengan ujian ANOVA dua hala. Kajian mendapati bahawa tiada perbezaan yang signifikan kumpulan dan jantina terhadap min skor ujian pencapaian selepas intervensi dengan modul M-Biotek-STEM. Namun, dapatan kualitatif menunjukkan bahawa pelaksanaan modul ini dapat meningkatkan minat pelajar dalam topik bioteknologi.

The research is done to study the effectiveness of the STEM interdisciplinary module, Malaysian(M)-Biotechnology-STEM in improving students’ achievement in the topic biotechnology in secondary school. 139 respondents from schools that offer Form 4 additional science in Selangor participated in the study. The effectiveness of the module in improving students’ achievement is tested with a quasi-experimental research design with non-equivalent group pre-test and post-test. The findings are analysed using two-way ANOVA test. It was found that there was no significant difference between group and gender towards the mean score of achievement test after intervention with the module. However, the feedback from the students in the qualitative analysis showed that students’ interest in learning biotechnology has improved with the implementation of the M-Biotek-STEM module.
