The results of the study showed that assessing the Ministry's unified exams from the perspectives of education administrators and technicians were average. The study also shows differences in the assessment of the Ministry's unified exams in the perspectives of education administrators and technicians due to variables like sex, career and the directorate of education. The difference was in favour of males in terms of sex, for education administrators in terms of career and in favour of the directorate of education (Qalqilia, Qabatya, Ramallah, Salfeet, AL-Quds) in accordance with the directorate of education variable. However, no differences are found due to variables like professional qualification, and administrative and supervision experience. In accordance with these results, the study recommends that the ministry of education should show more interest to the recommendations and notes collected by professionals who work in the field of schooling, particularly supervisors who follow up the school subjects targeted by the ministry's unified exams. This feedback should be considered to comprehensively develop and improve these exams. Key words: Assessment, Unified Exams, Administrators, Technicians.
