This study identifies students' attitudes at the University of Jeddah towards e- tests in view of variables of scientific specialization, gender, and academic level. To achieve this objective, the comparative descriptive approach was used. In addition, the Aptitudes Scale toward E-tests was applied to a sample of 1294 male and female students at the University of Jeddah from the second to the eighth level in different colleges. The ages ranged from 18 to 22 years selected by the random stratified method of those who underwent e-tests during the academic year 2019-2020. The findings revealed that there is an average attitude among the study sample towards electronic tests. There were statistically significant differences in the attitude towards electronic tests according to gender, the dimension of student's self, and the dimension of test administration in favor of males. Also, the dimension of the test content, the dimension of electronic tests nature, and on the scale as a whole in favor of females. Furthermore, there were differences in the attitude towards electronic tests according to specialization on the dimension of the student self, the dimension of the test content, the dimension of the nature of electronic tests, and on the scale as a whole in favor of scientific specialization. In addition, there were no differences in the attitudes towards electronic tests according to academic level on the four dimensions and the scale as a whole. Also, there were no differences in the attitude towards electronic tests according to age, on the dimensions, and on the scale as a whole. In light of the research findings, several recommendations were presented.
