Science process skills have been given due emphasis in the science curriculum for the past 25 years. In fact, acquisition of science process skills has been one of the aims in science education. These skills are best acquired through scientific activities which are appropriate to students’ cognitive development level. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of ‘Pentaksiran Kerja Amali’ or commonly known as PEKA, in enhancing the acquisition of integrated science process skills among Form Four students. A total of 32 students were involved in this study. An instrument known as Test of Integrated Science Process Skills II (TISPS II) was used to measure the level of students’ acquisition of the integrated science process skills. The t-test procedure was used and the results showed there was a significant difference between the means of the pre and post tests. Students’ acquisition of the skills particularly in formulating hypothesis, defining operationally, designing experiment and interpreting data improved after they had undergone the PEKA program. Some implications of the study are also discussed.
