Computer-based test (CBT) is still viewed to be incapable of measuring students’ higher order thinking skills (HOTS). This research aims to describe the teachers’ perceptions on the CBT model in stimulating HOTS among high school students in physics exams. This is a descriptive qualitative research involving lecturers and professional teachers in Lampung as respondents. The data were collected through Likert-scale questionnaire. The fifth scale shows strongly agree and first scale shows strongly disagree. Data analysis was conducted by counting the frequency of each scale for each questionnaire item to be then converted into percentage. The results show that teachers perceive that HOTS stimulus structure in the form of images/graphics, video/audio physical phenomena, animated/experimental simulations can enrich the diversity of items and the level of cognitive thinking. The items and options on a CBT are suggested to be raised randomly. In CBT, it is recommended to display the remaining time available for working on the test. Scoring is distinguished by cognitive level, formation of questions, and level of difficulty of the questions. Feedback from the system, in the form of follow-up for the students, is given both to the students who can work on the problem as a form of enrichment and the students who cannot answer the question as a guide to understand the material being tested.
