The mastery of physics subject of Senior High School students in Tasikmalaya city is not evenly distributed and less satisfied as expected. This study aims to analyze the student ability in constructing physics analogy of Senior High School. The research method used in this research was descriptive analytics which is a case study. The population of this study were Senior High Schools State 1 students in Tasikmalaya city, while the samples were the students of class XII MIA 1 and MIA 2 State Senior High School 1 in Tasikmalaya city taken with purposive sampling technique as much as 78 students. Data collection techniques in the research were a written test to measure student ability in constructing physics analogy. In general, the results of the analysis indicate that the student ability in constructing physics analogy in Senior High School State 1 at Tasikmalaya city was spread unevenly, but if viewed by sex their ability was spread evenly in groups of men rather than women. It was also found that the students' ability in constructing physics analogy was spread evenly among high achieving student rather than low achievers. Based on the student’s answer in the test of the ability in constructing physics analogy, it turned out the skill that measured in the test, skill distinguished the observation and conclusions. In general, have a lot capability and skill of the least controlled by students was the skill of observing the situation critically. Of the above findings, it could be said that Senior High School students that have been able to build a physics analogy will have a great opportunity to succeed in learning or will achieve a good achievement in learning.
