The industrial revolution 4.0 had a significant impact on Indonesia, so Indonesia must prepare for that impact. Preparation begins with the improvement of the quality of competence possessed  by  college  graduates.  Polytechnic  is  a  vocational  high  school  that  aims  to  prepare graduates  with  certain  field  competencies  so  as  to  be  able  to  work  in  the  industrial  world professionally. Learning methods relevant to the competence of these graduates are the learning model  of  Student  Centered  Learning  (SCL)  covering  Problem,  Project,  and  Inquiry  Based Learning.  The  three  models  of  learning  require  direct  involvement  of  students  in  learning activities,  where  the  atmosphere  and  conditions  of  the  learning  environment  that  resemble business and industry. One of the important factors affecting student involvement in learning activities is the factor that comes from within the student itself. This study aims to model the level of motivation and critical thinking skills of students to determine the learning model used. The  modeling  results  with  the  Naive  Bayes  Classifier  show  an  accuracy  of 91.667% and 93.617%. The modeling results are used as a variable with the final class of the corresponding learning model. The final result is expected, the system is able to increase the motivation and critical  thinking  skills  of  the  students  for  the  implementation  of  the better learning  process.
