# The Analysis of Problem-Solving Ability in Model-Eliciting Activities Problem Solving Skill (MEAs-PSS) Learning Model

Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has constrained all prior habits, not only the way we communicate but also the way we travel, work and study. Therefore, building a learning model that can develop problem-solving skills in learning in the new normal era is essential. The type of research was research & development and experimental research. Development research is developing a mathematical learning model to develop a problem-solving program called Model-Eliciting Activities Problem Solving Skill (MEAs-PSS). Furthermore, experimental research was carried out to investigate the ability to solve mathematical problems with a pre-experimental research setting of one pretest-posttest group. The subject of the study was a class VIII student of SMPN 6 Makassar. The experimental units provided to the research subjects include (1) providing problem-solving ability tests to students before being given the MEAs-PSS Learning Model treatment and (2) providing problem-solving ability tests to students after being given the MEAs-PSS Learning Model treatment. The results of descriptive statistical analysis of problem-solving skills for all indicators Identify the problem (A), Devise a Plan (B), Carry Out the Plan (C), and Looking Back (D) observed an increase in the average value from pretest to post-test. The results of inferential statistical analysis obtained problem-solving skills for all indicators Understand the Problem, Devise a Plan, Carry Out the Plan, and Looking Back statistically significantly there is a difference between the pretest result and the post-test result. When paying attention to the average score for all indicators, a significant improvement was achieved from pretest to post-test, stimulated by learning the MEAs-PSS. These results show that using the MEAs-PSS could effectively improve problem-solving skills for all indicators.
