Background: The test instrument can be interpreted as a number of questions that must be responded in order to measure the level of students’ ability. This research aimed to produce a test instrument based on HOTS questions on social studies subjects that are valid, reliable, have a good difficulty index and differentiation power. The valid HOTS question-based test instrument is then uploaded to Edmodo so that students can access it from anywhere. Materials and Methods: This research used the R&D (Research and Development) method which consisted of three steps, namely define, design, and develop. At the define stage, the researcher determined the basic competencies to be developed into question indicators. Then, at design stage, the researcher created HOTS items according to the question grid. At the develop stage, the researcher examined and analyzed each item. Results: This research produced a HOTS question-based test instrument consisting of 3 essay questions with item 1 has very high validity, high reliability, moderate difficulty index, and good difference index. Item 2 has high validity, high reliability, medium difficulty index, and good difference index. Item 3 has high validity, high reliability, medium difficulty index, and medium difference index. Conclusion:This research implies that the three questions are suitable to be used and can be saved into a question bank so that it can be used by the teacher later on.
