    Abstract

    Programme for International Student Assesment (PISA) result in all five-surveys2000-2012 indicates the low of Indonesian students’ mathematical literacy performance. Even, in PISA 2012, Indonesia merely ranked 64 out of 65 countries in which most of students were only able to solve the low-level tasks. Considering those reasons, it is realized that mathematics problem which could support students’ mathematical literacy promoting, such as PISA-like tasks, is important to develop. Therefore, this design research type development study aims at producing a set of PISA-like mathematics problems which are valid and practical as well as have the potential effect. Investigating the potential effect then becomes the focus on this article. It is needed to address how PISA-like tasks developed in this study could propose the potential benefit especially for students. There were 28 seven graders of SMP Negeri 1 Palembang involved in field test became the subject of this study. Data collecting techniques used were students’ test result, questionnaire, and interviews. Overall findings indicate that 15 items of PISA-like mathematics task developed in this study has thepotentialeffects indicated by students’ interest and motivation in solving problems, students’ positive response toward integrating of PISA-like problems into the mathematics textbook or daily mathematics exercise in the classroom, as well as students’ fundamental mathematical capabilities (FMC) activation underlying three process of mathematical literacy; formulate, employ, and interpret. Keywords: PISA-like problems, mathematical literacy, potential effests
