Students of Special Education (SE) are expected to have a high interest in the social service work field so that there is a compatibility with their education. However, the education selection of SE students is not always based on interest in the social service work field, so there is a possibility that SE students will not pursue a career in social service work field after they graduated. This study aims to determine the interest of SE students in the social service work field in the SE field. The respondents were 73 fifth semester SE students of Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS), consisting of 54 female students and 19 male students. The sampling technique used is a non-random purposive sampling. RMIB interest test and a career interest questionnaire are used to collect the data. Data were analyzed by using frequency analysis. The results shows that (1) Based on the RMIB interest test, 79% of SE-UNS students have a high interest in the social service work field; (2) Based on the questionnaire, 60% of SE-UNS students choose to work in the social service field, such as teachers, social workers, heads of social foundations, sign language interpreters, principals, and social volunteers. Thus, it can be concluded that the majority of SE-UNS students have had interests in the social service work field in accordance with the SE field.

Abstract

Science is one of the subjects of National Standard School Final Examination (UASBN) in SD/MI, hence the learning achievement of the subject determines the students’ graduation. UASBN topics are taken from fourth until sixth grade materials so that science learning achievement of fourth grader needs more attention. But the fact is, based on the data of fourth grader in SDN ‘X’ Yogyakarta, the average value for science is sequence to 9 of 11 subjects. Besides, the science average value is still lower than the minimum criteria for completeness (KKM) of science. For years, the method developing in school is the conventional method (Kumara, 2004; Brahim, 2007; Depdiknas, 2008), whereas science is a subject which needs skill of understanding, analyzing, and relating a phenomenon with other phenomenon (Depdiknas, 2007). The purpose of this research is to examine the capability of Menggambar-Menceritakan Gambar method to improve the fourth grader’s science learning achievement. This research used a quasi experimental method with an “untreated control group design with pretest and posttest“. Science test was given for pretest and posttest. The intervention was applied for 10 sessions (3 sessions a week), which was held in 75 minutes. There were 32 partisipants, divided into two groups, experimental group (n=22) and control group (n=10). The data was analyzed by T-test. The gain-score was used for the analysis. The result of independent sample t-test analysis showed the differences in science learning achievement between experimental and control group (t=3,878; p<0,01), while the results of paired sample t-test analysis showed a difference between pretest and posttest scores of the experimental group (t=-9.298, p<0.01). These results indicate that Menggambar-Menceritakan Gambar method could improve fourth grader’s science learning achievement. Keywords: Menggambar-Menceritakan Gambar method, science learning achievement, fourth grader
