Abstract

This research discusses the revolution in economic education assessment techniques through the development of an Android-based CBT (Computer Based Testing) assessment system. This innovative approach aims to increase effectiveness in evaluating students' economic learning. This article explains the important role of an Android-based CBT assessment system in providing an interactive and interesting learning experience for students. We also review the integration of CBT assessment techniques with relevant economics learning materials to enrich students' understanding. Case-based assessment methods are also introduced as an integral part of this system, providing students with the opportunity to apply economic concepts and theories in real situations. With the combination of Android technology and an innovative assessment approach, it is hoped that students will be more actively involved in economic learning and have a deeper understanding. The research results state that (1) The interview guide used in the research has a validity level of 75%. (2) The results of the teacher and student response questionnaire regarding the use of Android-based CBT in Economics learning show positive responses from both groups, with a good average response. (3) The application of Android-based CBT in Economics learning provides a number of significant benefits, including increased efficiency in testing, instant feedback, and automatic measurement.
