Problem-Based Learning, Learning Independence, Ability of Research Statistical Concept, Correlational research design


 Purpose of the study: The purpose of this study is to investigate the process from which students understand the concepts of research statistics and learning independence on the subject of research statistics. And their relationship between understanding the concept with independence and PBL learning models

Methodology: This research was conducted at Madrasah Ibtidaiyah Teacher Education (Primary Teacher Education/PGMI) State Islamic Institute (IAIN) Bengkulu in which the samples used were students of 6 semester and students of 8 semesters. The research method was qualitative and quantitative with correlational research design, with total samples 295 with total sampling. The research instruments were by using independence questionnaires and multiple-choice questions. The data were analyzed by using simple regression analysis.

Main Findings: Problem Based Learning (PBL) has a significant relationship with the understanding concept research statistical subject and learning independence.

Implication/Applications of this study: Understanding the statistical concepts of research. Because the statistical theory is useful in completing a student's final project ( would be helpful for students to use this model to study of research statistics.

Novelty/Originality of this study:  No study has been done so for on this sample.
