Abstract: This study aims to produce products and determine student responses to assessment instruments based on multiple intelligences of science learning in junior high schools. This research was carried out in Ratahan State Junior High School 3 by conducting small-scale trials on 10 students and large-scale trials on 20 students who had conducted research, the research instruments were first validated by experts before being trialled. This research is a type of research and development (research and development). The product produced from this research is an assessment instrument based on multiple intelligences in natural science learning that is feasible to use, as evidenced by a score of 4,625 (very good) from experts on aspects of attitude assessment, a score of 4,406 (very good) from experts on the aspects of knowledge and a score of 4,469 (very good) from experts on the aspect of skills. The practicality analysis results obtained a total score of 55 with a percentage of 90% included in the very good category, because the compound intelligence-based assessment instrument developed contains all aspects of the ability to be observed. Evaluation results in small groups obtained an average score of 4.64 (very good) and large group trials obtained an average score of 4.81 (very good). Based on these results, the assessment instrument is based on multiple intelligences in science learning and students' responses to the instrument are categorized very well.
