collaborative based inquiry, metacognition, elementary school, model development.



This study aims to reports the results of collaborative based inquiry learning models development in elementary school students. The learning design is planned and adjusted to elementary school learning needs. The description of this study includes the result of evaluation from the experts, teacher and student assessments, as well as the assessment result of applying the developed learning model. The results of this development research show that; first, the collaborative based inquiry learning effectiveness testing is feasible from the experts’ perspective; second, the collaborative based inquiry learning model effectiveness testing is feasible from the users’ perspective; third, the collaborative based inquiry learning model effectiveness testing can improve the metacognitive abilities of students at SDN 1 Sandik, SDN 13 Ampenan, and SDN 43 Ampenan, and SDN 2 Sandik in West Nusa Tenggara Province. Overall, it can be concluded that the collaborative based inquiry learning model is a constructivist learning model, which in each stage will train metacognitive abilities so that the children's metacognitive abilities will increase. With the increasing of metacognitive abilities, problem solving abilities can also increase.
