Abstract

The reform program of College Entrance Examination in Shanghai was issued in September 2014, which made a sweeping change in English examination. The Reform is intended to change the model of exam-oriented English education. This research focuses on the reform of English examination, the change of learning style and the progress of quality-oriented education. The independent-designed questionnaire about learning style and the progress of quality-oriented education were used to survey high school students in some key high school in Shanghai. The in-depth research was made on the basis of the analysis of data and the study of domestic and foreign researches. Finally, this research brings forth a conclusion: the fixed learning model hasn't been actually gotten rid of, and English study in high schools still focuses on doing a great amount of written exercise. However, the recent reform does pave the way for further promoting Essential-Qualities-Oriented (EQO) Education. In addition, it alleviates contradictions between gaining higher scores and acquiring more knowledge to some extent. The importance educators attach to English speaking and writing is increasing, occupying a similar part of time with English grammar in class. Students also hold active attitude towards English learning. In the meanwhile, according to the conclusion, researchers put forward some comprehensive and constructive suggestions on this issue.
