Abstract


The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an institution that has examined the
scientific literacy abilities of students aged 13-15 years old. From this program, it was found that the
scientific literacy skill of Indonesian students is still below the international average. This study aimed
to analyze the scientific literacy skills of students of SMP Kota Banda Aceh in solving PISA questions
with physics content. The subjects of this study were 90 grade VII and VIII grade students aged 13-15
years. These students are randomly selected to represent high, medium and low abilities. The instrument
used in this study was the PISA standard scientific literacy questions with physics content. The results
showed that the level of scientific literacy skills of students of SMP Kota Banda Aceh in solving PISA
questions with physics content is categorized as medium. The results of the analysis also show that the
main weakness is found in the aspect of using scientific knowledge in analyzing texts or articles.
