Abstract

This study aims to develop an assessment instrument based on Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) in thematic learning. This research adopts the Borg & Gall development model which is limited to eight stages of development, namely data collection, product draft planning, product development, validation, small group trials, small group trial results refinement, large group trials, and product improvement. This research was conducted on 110 grade 5 students in several elementary schools in Way Halim sub-district. This assessment instrument produced 20 multiple choice tests and was selected and tested twice. This shows that the assessment instrument is valid and reliable. The theoretical feasibility of the assessment instrument based on the assessment of 3 experts is included in the categories very good, relevant, representative, practical, discriminatory, specific, and proportional. Empirically this study shows that in the first and second trials the overall validity value of the questions is greater than the r table, namely 0.344 and the reliability values ​​are 0.786 and 0.763. The results showed that the assessment instrument developed was theoretically and empirically feasible. So, efforts to support the learning process continue to be needed which are useful for improving higher order thinking skills in students.
