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.

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.
