This study projected the aim at focusing on the analysis on gender bias in textbook tasks and test-items in printed national examination documents as well as the students’ perception toward the bias. This study provides information about two issues: data sources and data analysis. The data were taken from senior high school textbooks and printed national examination documents. All the data were set up using content analysis. There are two types of gender bias which were mostly found in the textbooks and the test items: (1) the language use and (2) the representation (3) Students’ Perceptions on Gender Bias on the Textbooks and Test Items. This study recommended that textbooks’ author and publisher should pay more attention to the textbook compilations. The English teacher also should take into account the gender as the focus on their learning.
