The Effect of Station Rotation Learning Model on Critical Thinking in Elementary School-level Students
The research aimed to determine the effect of the station rotation learning model on critical thinking skills at elementary school level. This research involved 5 elementary schools in Malang. The number of samples in this research amounted to 217 pupils who were divided into 2 classes; 105 pupils for the experimental class and 112 pupils for the control class. Cluster random sampling was used which further divided the sample based on the area in Malang. The design of this research used a posttest-only control group design. Data collection used critical thinking instruments. Data were analyzed using an independent T-test. The outcomes of this research indicated that there was a significant effect on pupils using the station rotation learning model on pupils critical thinking skills. The outcomes obtained could provide alternative choices for educators using this learning model with various materials.
