Abstract
This paper focuses on a study of the washback of the college English entrance exam (CEEE). The study was motivated by a need for empirical research in keeping with the language teaching and learning reform currently underway. Questionnaire data analysis and mathematical statistics were employed in an attempt to examine how tests put impact on second language acquisition (SLA) process. The paper suggests that further reforms of language teaching and learning are supposed to be practically applied in accordance with the competence acquisition based on the requirement of CEEE.
