Abstract: The fourth industrial revolution is linked to the 21st century. Education 4.0 must be improved or established in order to overcome the fourth industrial revolution. The main feature of Education 4.0 is the integration of technology and the STEM program at school. Standard and regular assessment and evaluation can improve education, including STEM and student learning achievement. The aim of this study was to develop valid and reliable STEM items for middle school students (MSS). The researcher developed 15 subjective and 5 objective questions and randomly selected 30 students from Etihad Private School. The test is validated by a senior lecture, an education school, Teknologi University Malaysia and an experienced teacher from Afghanistan. For both query forms, which have the Alpha value of the Cronbach subjective test item of 0.77 and the reliability factor for the objective test item of 0.8, the results indicate a reasonable reliability. Researchers proposed more study with a larger sample size and more random sampling method subjective questions, as well as the introduction of another criterion of reliability, such as test reliability, inter-rater reliability.
