Abstract


This study aims to determine the correlation between improvement (i) cognitive achievement with critical thinking skills, (ii) cognitive achievement with metacognitive awareness, (iii) critical thinking skills with metacognitive awareness, and (iv) cognitive achievement with critical thinking skills and students' metacognitive awareness. This research is pre-experimental (pre-experimental design) with the design of One Group Pretest-Posttest Design. The study population was all students of class XI at Public Senior High School (SMA Negeri) 1 Binamu consisting of 210 students. Determination of the sample is done by random sampling. The research instrument is a test of critical thinking skills, a Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (MAI) questionnaire, a student's cognitive biology learning outcomes test. Data were analyzed using inferential statistics with a one-way product-moment correlation test and multiple regression. The results showed that there were correlations that were: (i) positive between cognitive achievement and critical thinking skills, (ii) positive between cognitive achievement and metacognitive awareness, (iii) negative between critical thinking skills and metacognitive awareness, and (iv) there correlation between increasing cognitive achievement with critical thinking skills and students' metacognitive awareness.
