Through policies made by the government in collaboration with universities/colleges that administer education units, it is expected that there will be an increase in scientific publications, especially at the international level. The policy has been going well with the increasing level of international scientific publications in the last 5 years, but not all are at the international level. The author analysed the effect of the scientific publication policy combined with socio-economic status, as the exogenous variable, to find out the effect on scientific publications, as the endogenous variable. Motivation are used as the mediator between variables. Data were collected from 242 graduate students in Central Java Province, Indonesia, who had already submitted or published their articles. The data were analysed using a Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) application, SmartPLS 3. The results indicate that (1) perception of scientific publication policy has significant and positive effect on the motivation, but insignificant on types of publications, (2) socioeconomic status has significant and positive effects on the types of publication, both direct and indirect effects, and (3) motivation has a significant effect on the types of publication which can be used as a mediator that has a significant effect

While the inquiry learning model is learning that is centered on the activities of students to find their own experiences and knowledge. The design of this study is pre-test, treatment of learning models, and post-test. The results of this study are that there are differences in the learning outcomes of experimental class 1 students (X Pm 1) with an average value of 74.75 and experimental class 2 (X Pm 2) with an average value of 77.00. And the calculation using the t-test obtained tcount= 2.086> ttable = 0.39.

Pages: 63-69

This research is an experimental study with a type of True Experimental research. The design carried out in this study was the design of the pretest-posttest control group design. Determination of the sample using a random sampling system while the data-collection technique was using test, that are pre-test and post-test. The class XII AK 1 as the experimental class 1 (video media) and class XII AK II (powerpoint media) as the experimental class 2. The normality test data was analyzed by using the pretest value on the use of video media with a significant level of 0.388 and on the use of a significant level powerpoint media of 0.059, it was stated that the two significant levels were normally distributed because they were greater than 0.05 . The homogeneity test results show that a significant level of pretest for both classes (video media and powerpoint media) is 0.436 and more than 0.05. It also shows that the sample used has the same or homogeneous variance. The results of the statistical test with the Independent Sample T-test showed a significance level of 0.001 <0.05, indicating that the results of the t-test <significance level of 0.05. In addition, it is known that tcount is 2.093 which indicates that tcount ˃ ttable (2,093 ˃ 0.408). So the hypothesis H0 is rejected and H1 accepted. So it can be concluded that there are differences in student learning outcomes using video media using powerpoint media.
