Abstract

Transformation of global education is crucial in developing future leaders as competent problem solvers in life. The idea of changing the conventional classroom into an authentic learning environment is one of the potential factors in enhancing scientific problem solving competency through formal education. Authentic practice is also supported by instructional and learning module which consists of beneficial learning activities and tasks for students in applying Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) to solve open-ended problems. Therefore, this study aimed to discuss the development of scientific problem solving competency in learning electrolysis among school students. The participants were assigned into groups to solve four real life tasks on electrolysis during the intervention in developing their scientific problem solving competency. The solution to the problems created for the respective real life tasks are categorized into four levels of competency. The outcome from this study indicates a significant positive development of scientific problem solving competency in enhancing the HOTS at school level.
