Abstract

Presentation skills are seen as an important ability that must be mastered by university students to prepare them for the work-place. Another purpose of university education aside from improving knowledge and achievement is preparing the students for the real competitions and succeed in their career. This research aimed to empirically prove whether problem-based learning method has its effect on students’ achievement and presentation skills. This research used descriptive qualitative method while quota sampling technique was used to select the subject. The data were analyzed by using structural equation modeling (SEM) with partial least squares (PLS) while the students’ performance was measured descriptively. The result showed that problem-based learning method gave a significant effect on students’ presentation ability which therefore improve their achievements. Students developed independent learning habit through their Problem-Based Learning experience which gave significant impact on the content and mastery of their presentation material although the discussions session didn’t run well due to the text dependency of the participants.
