A quasi experimental research with pretest-posttest control group design was used in this study. The population of this study was 6th semester students of biology department and 2 classes chosen as the sample by applying cluster random sampling technique. Experimental class was using mini research application on contextual learning based while control class was using direct learning. The instrument used to obtain the data of students’ attitude was description questionnaire. The data were analysed by using Mann-Whitney U-Test with used Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) 22.
