Abstract : Does personality has any impact on scores? What kind of tests preferred the most by intelligent learner? Students choose their way of learning and studying based on their perception of the assessment requirements (Birenbaum, 1994; Birenbaum & Feldman, 1998). Assessment type of measuring students' knowledge can therefore influence the learning process of the positive way. Hence, selecting an assessment instrument plays important role in the learning process (Dochy & McDowell, 1997; Wiliam, 2011). Students ' assessment preferences show their conceptions of the learning and their approach to learning (Birenbaum, 2003; Struyven, 2005). Investigating students ' assessment preferences is thus helping us extract the factors which drive the learning process. This research aimed to investigate the relationship between assessment preference and examinees' intelligence and personality types. The researcher revealed the role of personality and intelligence in assessment preference. The main point in this research is the validity of evaluation sustained. Multiple choice is the most preferred test by students. Multiple regression analyses were used and researcher found the best predictor for each type of test. Finding students' preference clarify the way of how teachers should choose their evaluation methods and this measuring methods must be fair. If the teacher knows the majority of his class, knows their personality and be aware of their intelligent he would be able to choose correct way of assessing his classes and gather true, pure and valid scores.
