Microscopic examination of malaria is needed to help diagnosis for a symptom of malaria. Standard error rate of malaria examination is the amount of ≤ 5% [5]. This study aims to determine the error rate factors that occurs in malaria microscopic examination by students’ Health Analyst Department Health Polytechnic Surabaya. This study is an observational descriptive study of qualitative analysis techniques and methods of this study is cross sectional. The number of sample in this study were 62 D3 and D4 degree fourth semester students’ Health Analyst Department Health Polytechnic Surabaya. This Research was done on the implementation of the pre-analysis (election unfit microscope for use and preparations are well preserved); the analysis (Reading preparation on Plasmodium falciparum tropozoites and gametocytes stadiums) and the post-analysis (microscopic examination results of Plasmodium Falciparum malaria tropozoites and gametocytes stadiums). The error rate of reading microscopic examination malaria Plasmodium Falciparum gametocytes and tropozoites stadium is 4.83% ≤ 5%. The microscopic examination of Plasmodium falciparum malaria tropozoite has higher error rate than; it is about 3.22% ≤ 5%. By Chi-Square Test, the use of the microscope has a relationship with readings examination plasmodium falciparum tropozoites and gametocytes stadiums as much as p=26,172a> 13.964 (α = 0.05).
