English language competence plays an importance role for social and economic sectors. As one of required skill for the market demands, English test is often conducted to measure one’s ability for both active and passive English language skills. Recent studies have found that the commonest international tests are considered unnecessary for non-native English countries’ pedagogical background. Therefore, Standardized Test of Academic English Proficiency Test (STAcEP) is designed to fill the gaps between the need of English language assessment and Indonesian socio-educational curriculum. Some previous studies of STAcEP research has focused on the test validity and reliability. However, study of learners’ attitude has not been conducted to evaluate to what extent the test is significantly correlated with their engagement with the test. This study aims to investigate learners’ attitude towards the implementation of STAcEP test instrument. In order to report accurately learners’ attitudes, a learners’ attitude of test participation questionnaire is electronically distributed to 750 participants. Thus, the data are analyzed qualitatively and presented according to learners’ attitude indicators towards: 1) test design; 2) test information transparency; 3) test procedures; 4) test mode; and 5) test wash back. The results revealed that various responds of the aforementioned indicators have been performed by the learners. Moreover, the finding of the study is expected to be a framework for STAcEP test preparation classes.
