    Abstract

    The study aimed at determining the strengths and the weaknesses of each prototype obtained in the development of Inquiry-Based Lab Manual in Acid Base Chapter. This article was limited to the analysis of the prototype I. Based on the literature review, analysis of needs and student learning outcomes, researcher identified that the experiments presented in Basic Chemistry Lab Manual based on confirmation or verification that provided little opportunity for students to develop an understanding of concepts, skills and abilities possessed by students. Therefore, development of inquiry-based lab manual was required for giving students the opportunity to seek and find knowledge independently through practical learning in the laboratory. This research used development research method which was limited in developing product, validating product, testing the practicality of product, and conducting product trial in Basic Chemistry Lab II class. The instrument for practicality test of the prototype I was a questionnaire that contained 15 descriptors with five alternative answers and score ranged 1-5 and accompanied by the comment column. Based on questionnaire data analysis, the score was of 4.20. This showed that the prototype I belonged to the category of practical and feasible guiding students in conducting laboratory experiments. Based on the analysis of student comments, the prototype I had strengths and weaknesses in terms of design, language and content so it needed to be revised and trial at a further step. Keywords: The Strengths and The Weaknesses, Inquiry-based Lab Manual in Acid Base Chapter
