This purpose of this research was to determine the influence of scientific inquiry based learning on science process skills. This experimental research was used nonrandomized control group pretest-posttest design. Population was all students of class XI SMAN 7 Malang. Samples in this study consists of two classes, XI MIPA 1 as experimental group and XI MIPA 2 as the control group. The independent variable was scientific inquiry based learning. The dependent variable was science processes skills. The research result show that scientific inquiry based learning significantly increase the student’s science process skills (p<0,05).
