This study investigates the effectiveness of using virtual museum in teaching social studies for the development of eighth grade students’ achievement and attitudes towards archaeology. A quasi-experimental study was conducted with a sample of 60 females, comprising one experimental and one control group (each consisting of 30 students). The experimental group was taught by virtual museum, while the control group was taught by the traditional method. The data was collected by administering an achievement test with thirty questions and a 43-item attitudinal scale. The validity of these instruments was checked by a panel of judges and reliability was examined using Cronbach’s alpha: (.712) for the test and (.891) for the scale. The results showed significant differences (α=0.05) between the means of the groups in favor of experimental groups in achievement test and attitudes towards archaeology and towards using museum in teaching. The study thus indicates that the use of virtual museums is beneficial in providing a supportive and encouraging learning environment.

There are three step of this study, it was defining the construc and formatting objectives, validity by expert review and item administration. The open-ended test was develop based on five components of digital literacy skill: information, communication, content creation, safety, and problem-solving. The open-ended test was initially piloted on four group of samples: interviews and validity by physics expert (2 Professor, 1 Doctoral), professional teachers (N=2), and college students of graduate school (N=2). Modification were made afterwards and the test was administered to a group of science students from high school in Yogyakarta province, Indonesia (N=129). Result of this study are: (1) The open-ended test instrumen proved valid and worthy of use to measure digital literacy skill; (2) Based on expert validation, the teset is valid with CVR value 1.00; (3) the average value and standard deviation of INFIT MNSQ is .83-1.21 (fit with rasch model/good item); (4) The item has a good degree of difficulty with range of difficulty level between (moderate level). The student’s digital literacy skill test can also be used to measure student’s skill with very low to excellent categories.
