The purpose of this study is to describe enhances critical thinking and problem solving ability among students. This research used a pre-experimental method with pretest and posttest group. The pretest and posttest test data were analyzed and the average N-gain was calculated to determine the increase in critical thinking and problem solving abilities after the application of Research-Based Learning. The results of the research indicate that the implementation of Research-Based Learning can develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability. It is proved by the fact that the students were able to show their interpretation, analysis, evaluation, inference, and explanation abilities as indicators of critical thinking. Also, the students able to understanding the problem, devising a plan, carrying out the plan (indicators of the problem-solving ability).
