The research objective is to describe the use of student worksheets based on projects that integrate information technology to assess students' mathematical problem-solving abilities. This type of research is descriptive research and the research subjects were students of the 2015 class of STKIP PGRI Sumatera Barat Mathematics Education program. The instruments used were essay test questions, which consisted of pre-test and post-test questions. Data analysis techniques with descriptive analysis indicators of mathematical problem-solving abilities in this study are (1) Identifying known elements, which are asked and the adequacy of the elements needed; (2) Formulating mathematical problems; (3) Explain the results of the problem using mathematics. The results of the study state that in the pre-test answers students can answer using the step method by identifying the known elements, but have not been able to formulate mathematical problems and explain the results of problems using mathematics. While the results of student answers at the time of the post-test are better, where students are able to meet the three indicators of problem-solving expected.
