Abstract
A research and development study was conducted to develop an scientific literacy instrument test in the global warming theme for middle school students. Random sampling method was used to involve 112 fifteen-year students who attend the natural science course at three middle schools in Bandung. The test was 36 multiple-choice item format which followed the framework PISA 2015 in the global warming theme encompassing three essential concepts, photosynthesis, environmental pollution and the causes and effects of global warming. Characteristics of the test was analyzed by using content validity ratio and classical test analysis, including test reliability, item content validity, item difficulty index, item discrimination index, point biserial coefficient and Ferguson's delta. The developmental result was 30 scientific literacy items in the global warming theme which is able to measure the expected concepts and discriminate between high and low-achieving students.
