Abstract

Along with technology development in the digital era, learning evaluation also experienced developments in the tools based on Android. Android is an information system on a smartphone that has been very popular among learners. Muhammadiyah Vocational High School of Kajen utilizes Android as an evaluation tool. The school has implemented Android Based Test (ABT) since 2020. Previously, the school conducted its evaluation using a computer, but it was wasteful of cost, time, and space. The school then develops an Android Based Test (ABT) evaluation tool that facilitates learners and teachers. This research illustrates the implementation of ABT evaluation and its advantages and disadvantages to evaluate students’ literacy in learning Arabic at Muhammadiyah Vocational High School of Kajen. This research uses a qualitative descriptive approach. The data was obtained from observations, documentation, and interviews of several teachers and students. This research shows that the implementation of ABT evaluation in Arabic language learning is carried out in three stages, namely preparation, implementation, and assessment. One of the advantages of ABT is that it makes the assessments more efficient. It also helps students solve problems easier and can be more motivated. The lack of training of IT teachers, server trouble, the need for a constant and stable internet connection, and the need for a reasonably large quota are some of the shortages of this evaluation method. Nonetheless, the findings confirm that technological tools, such as Android can help teachers improve their performance and manage classroom evaluation more effectively.
