Abstract

To prevent the Covid-19 pandemic, the government issued a policy for schools to apply lessons from home. Starting March 16, 2020, schools in Indonesia are implementing online learning methods. This study aimed to evaluate the online summative assessment activities during a pandemic in a vocational school in Indonesia. This research used a quantitative descriptive approach. One hundred forty-two students from one faculty were taken as respondents using the convenience sampling method. The results showed 66.0% of students used a mobile modem (limited) for internet connection. According to some students, internet connectivity was moderate. Meanwhile, 48.8% of students used cell phones as a medium for communication. In the faculty, 49.6% of assessments used google form as a platform. 69.9 % of students felt using the digital platform was useful enough for review. 65.3 % of students encountered no obstacles in using the digital platform. According to some students, the time for collecting assessments was not enough. 72.9% of students felt the test was quite difficult even though 61,8% thought it was following the material being taught. Most of the students (72.9%) thought it was quite adequate to follow the online assessment. However, 65.3% of respondents still preferred offline than online assessment.
