Students need to be educated in order to have an independent character. "Independence of taking the test" has a positive influence on students' independence. The aim of this study; (1) researchers know the effect of "paperless test" against "cognitive student learning outcomes" compared to "paper and pencil test", (2) researchers know the effect of "paperless test" against "the independence of the students taking tests," as opposed to "paper and pencil tests ". This research was conducted by observing differences in learning outcomes scores, and observed differences in students' scores independence in carrying out the test. This difference is expected because influenced by the ways of implementing the test. Implementation of these tests done in two ways, ie the test is paperless and paper and pencil testing. The test is performed three times. In each will be obtained data in the form of a score of independence and data in the form of scores of learning outcomes, both tests are performed by means of a paperless or done by paper and pencil. Research data to test paperless is data in the form of scores of learning outcomes, and scores independence for the first test, 2nd, and 3rd. Comparative data is data from paper and pencil test namely learning outcomes scores and scores of independence for the first test, 2nd, and 3rd. Data will be analyzed by t-test. T-test performed on learning outcomes between test scores paperless with paper and pencil. T-test was also carried out on students' independence between test scores paperles with paper and pencil. Paperless test data are average scores of learning outcomes: 19.10, 20.30, and 21.10, the average of students' independence: 19.17, 19.20, and 19.13. Meanwhile, paper and pencil test data are average scores of learning outcomes: 19.00, 20.03, and 21.03, the average of students' independence: 18.93, 19.13, and 19.07. The average variance of paperless test is 1.044, while the average variance of paper & pencil test is 1.056. Total students each class is 30. Research concluded; (1) score of "cognitive learning outcomes" paper and pencil tests ≤ paperless, at three times the test. (2) Score "independent execution of test “paper and pencil” ≤ paperless, at three times the test. Research suggests; (1) computers can be used by students to take turns, (2) training of about done to improve the "independent student".
