QUALITY ANALYSIS OF STUDENTS ' RESEARCH IN THE ENGINEERING FACULTY OF IBNU SINA BATAM UNIVERSITY
This study aims to obtain data about the quality of research conducted by students at the Faculty of Engineering, Ibnu Sina University over the past three years. The population used in this study were students of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ibnu Sina from two knowledge groups found at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ibnu Sina. Sampling was conducted based on purposive sampling, namely educational research thesis in 2016-2019. From the number of theses that existed during the period 2016-2019, random sampling was conducted for sampling. The research method used is descriptive qualitative by conducting content analysis systematically of documents as data sources. The research quality parameters measured included aspects: theme chosen, presentation and language, structure and logic of the writings, relevance between sub-chapters (Background, Identification, Formulation, Hypothesis, Depth and Extent of Theory, and Research Methods), determination of subjects and research objects , data collection technique; the validity of the instruments used, data analysis, drawing conclusions, and referral sources. The results showed that the quality of educational research conducted by students of the Faculty of Engineering showed that the topics studied did not yet show the presentity and innovation. The topic chosen is still limited to the topics discussed in the previous thesis. The topic of media and learning outcomes dominates as a topic of great interest. When viewed from the object of research the ability to prepare a research thesis for students needs to be improved, especially in methodology, topic selection, language, data collection techniques, instrument preparation, data analysis, and drawing conclusions.
