Abstract: This paper describes the problem in education in developing countries especially in Indonesia regarding high stake testing. Some facts have proven that standardized test or national examination causes many problems in Indonesia. It widens the gap between education and the real life because the focus of teaching and leaning is on standardizing test. It also increases anxiety in all school stakeholders because test scores in national examination is the main benchmark of their success. Because of those problems, the author believes that there should be a reformation in education in developing counties. Instead of applying standardized test, students can do project-based learning. In 215' century education, technologies are improving exponentially and they are parts of students' lives. Therefore, the implementation of project-based leaning with technologies can be one of effective tool to break the power of high stakes testing in developing countries. The possibility of using digital portfolio as an assessment tool is also discussed
