Abstract: One of learning objectives in the school to develop students science process skills (KPS). KPS development meant that students were able to develop science and success in his future life. However, KPS development of students at junior high schools in Jambi has not been optimal, this is presumably because still lack a science teacher understanding to KPS. Therefore, the research aims to examine as far as science teacher understanding at senior high school in Jambi to KPS. Total of 32 science teachers tested and interviewed.
