It plays a major role in education today, whether they are achievement tests measuring subject-specific knowledge or aptitude tests measuring scholastic readiness. The purpose of this study is to answer the question that, to what extent that the secondary school teachers at Gabel Awlia District's schools are using standardized tests to measure student's achievement?; to what extent that the standardized test is measuring students' achievement?, and what kind obstacles and issues that lead to the absence of standardized test? The method used in this study is the descriptive analytical method; questionnaires have been distributed for 66.7% of the teachers' community. The study concluded that, standardized test is necessary to evaluate students' achievement and improving teaching and learning depend on the good test, but teachers do not always use it because of the poor condition that most of the district's schools have.
