Many educators still have difficulty in conducting online assessments, especially for those who have not been facilitated by the Learning Management System application or the like. Therefore, this study aims to develop an online assessment method that is effective and can be easily carried out by almost every educator even if they are new to using social media applications such as WhatsApp. This research is a Research and Development (R&D) which is adapted from the 4-D model with 4 stages, namely (1) define, includes observation and journal analysis to determine the specifications of the assessment method that will be developed as needed by educators and students in online teaching/learning; (2) designs; (3) develop, which includes the development and testing of products imposed on a physics lecturer and engineering student at a private university in Banten; and (4) disseminate, through scientific publication of this research results. Apart from observation, data were also collected using interview and document analysis methods which were then analyzed qualitatively. The findings of this study indicate that the online assessment method that can be used by almost all educators during this pandemic is familiar social media applications such as WhatsApp. An online assessment method that is effective and easy to apply is by giving test questions directly through Google Meet or zoom meetings with a certain time duration for each question, and sending the answers via WhatsApp. This effectiveness and convenience is based on the results of interviews with research subjects who have used this method with the help of the Google Meet and WhatsApp applications where they find it easy to organize and evaluate learning outcomes. The results of the assessment also show the actual abilities of students because it is very difficult to be able to cheat or cooperate. In addition, the results of this assessment are also very useful for testing the quality of the questions themselves. So this method helps educators to measure the achievement of the competence of their students as well as to validate the test instruments that have been developed.
