Learning assessment is a process of gathering information on the students’ learning outcomes. In conducting an assessment, teachers should pay attention to the principles of comprehensive assessment and put a strong emphasis on assessing the three domains. Moreover, the assessment process should be appropriately conducted to obtain real information about the students’ existing abilities. The principle of portfolio assessment is assessment for learning processes, learning outcomes, and continuous assessment. This study was intended to reveal the importance of portfolio assessment as an alternative online learning assessment. Document studies were conducted to collect the data and then the data were critically and descriptively analysed to establish valid and reliable findings. This study revealed that portfolio assessment is an effective assessment to be used to assess the student's competence through online learning systems.  This study implies that teachers should consider utilizing portfolio assessment more intensively in their online learning-teaching activities.
