Trying to run unit tests with xcodebuild leaves a lot to be desired. In this screencast I'll show you why xctool is a superior alternative. Quick, parsable build output and easy to follow pass/fail status on test runs make xctool worth checking out.
xctool is most easily installed with homebrew: brew install xctool. Once installed, you'll have an xctool command on your system. This command takes arguments similar to xcodebuild, so transitioning over should be simple.
