### Tursina Ratu, Muhammad Erfan

#### Abstract

This research aims to investigate the effect of Every Circuit Simulator to student's learning motivation and its effect on the student’s ability in analyzing electrical circuits. This quasi-experimental research used matching pre-test – post-test control group design. The Sample of this research are 35 students of physics education study program, faculty of teacher training, Samawa University which divided into two groups. The experiment group (17 students) used Every Circuit simulator, and control group (18 students) used conventional learning (oral). Instrument used in this research are learning motivation questionnaire and electric circuit’s analysis test sheet. The data in this research were analyzed using independent t-test and normalized gain test. The result showed that student’s motivation on experimental group is higher than control group. The Students ability in analyzing electric circuits of the experimental group are significantly better than control group (tvalue 9.623 > ttable 2.034). It’s concluded that Every Circuit simulator is effective in improving motivation and student’s ability in analyzing electrical circuits.
