Abstract

The importance of problem solving skills is that students gain experience to find a way out of a problem. However, in fact the fourth grade students of SDN 7 Wadaga's problem-solving abilities have not shown maximum results and students tend to be faster in solving direct calculation questions than story questions. The purpose of this study was to determine the problem solving ability of students in understanding the problem, devising a plan, carrying out the plan, and looking back. This type of research uses descriptive qualitative research. The subjects of this study were the fifth grade students of SDN 7 Wadaga with a total of 13 students. Data collection techniques in this study are tests, interviews, and document studies. The data analysis techniques used are credibility, transfermability, dependability, and confirmability. The conclusion in this study is the problem solving ability of students in understanding the problem of 81.4%, in devising a plan 94,86%, carrying out plans of 82.9%, and looking back 67%. This means that students can understand the problem, devising a plan, carry out the plans in the test well. Meanwhile, in looking back the answers and processes, it is quite low.
