In recent years, TOEFL has become one of the most popular English- proficiency testing methods for non- native speakers. However it has some other purposes, one which is to utilize it as a graduation requirement in almost every university in Indonesia. In additin to that role, empirical studies report that from the required minimum scores, a considerable number of students performed unsatisfactory. Therefore, many studies have been geared to investigate various aspects of TOEFL related things with the utmost purpose of helping students to meet the expected requirement. This includes scrutinizing gender factor in TOEFL like test. Basing on quantitative ex post facto, This research is aimed to see whether gender plays as contributing factor to students’ ability to answer overview questions and detailed questions in the TOEFL listening. In this study, 42 out of 94 students’ scores were randomly selected as the data. The data were collected from a TOEFL-like test’s result and were then analyzed using an Independent t-test on SPSS. Based on the t-test analysis, the result showed that there is a different performance between male and female students which can be seen from the different mean scores between them (male= 10.19 and female =10.38). Nevertheless, the difference was not significant since the t table > t value (2.021>.871).
