Multiple choice test and cloze test have been widely used for measuring reading comprehension since their introduction to the testing world by Taylor in 1953. Despite of the advantages or disadvantages of both tests, this research focused on the students achievement or ability in answering multiple choice and cloze test, and to find out in which ways do the students perceive about the use of multiple choice and cloze test in their reading comprehension test. Then, the results were analized according to students’ scores and their opinions using quantitative and qualitative method. To this end, multiple choice and cloze test were prepared from one reading passage with similar readability level. The subjects of the study were 22 students of XII.IA.1 grade of SMAN 12 Banda Aceh. The results of the tests revealed that students’ scores in cloze test is much higher than their score in multiple choice test. Through interview section which was done at the other day after the tests have been done, the majority of students were more familiar and prefered to do cloze test, and they found that cloze test is easier to understand. These perceptions strengthten the differences of the students’ scores on the first research question finding. But, the result also revealed that multiple choice test is a better measurement of students reading comprehension ability. The students' impressions and opinions about tests and their own performance were recorded and taken into consideration. The implications of the findings and suggestions for more studies are required for detail and applicable data for the improvement and achievement on students reading comprehension ability in future.
