Background. This study aims to develop a Health Education assessment module in the classroom for lower primary students.
Methods. This study aims to identify the effectiveness of the health education assessment module for lower primary students by implementing it in the classroom-based assessment. The methodology design used in this study is the design and development research (DDR). The paper focused on the third phase of the design, which is an assessment of the module. The instrument used in this phase is the quasi-experimental to identify the effectiveness of assessment material, the assessment module for lower primary students in classroom-based assessment. Sixty year-one students were used as a control group and experimental group for this study. Pre and post-tests are given to determine the effectiveness of the Health Education assessment module. The data of this study has been analyzed using ANCOVA.
Results. Research findings show the effectiveness of the stated module in increasing lower primary students’ knowledge of Health Education subjects. Based on the findings, there was a significant difference between the experimental group (mean = 84.1, standard deviation = .605) and the control group (mean = 50.61, standard deviation = .605). The mean difference between the two groups was 34 points scale, with a 95% confidence interval range. Also, the effect of size between groups is high, with the statistical value of eta squared 𝜂𝜂2 = 0.952.
Conclusion. Therefore, based on the findings of this study, the Health Education assessment module that has been developed effectively improves students’ knowledge in the context of this study.

• In primary schools, assessment modules for Health Education should be used as a way to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning.
• Consideration needs to be taken by teachers when implementing the assessment module in school, as different school and student statuses might affect the assessment approach used such as Apps, softcopy, and hardcopy.
