Abstract
With the popularity of computers and the appearance of the Internet, researches about the application of formative assessment in English teaching under the Internet environment is increasing. The experiment of this paper taken on the basis of Formative Assessment in classroom English teaching and the principles of online formative assessment is to see whether there are any significant differences between these two different ways of testing in improving students’ listening comprehension ability. The result shows that there is a feasibility of online-based testing methods in formative assessment, like the traditional paper-based testing in formative assessment, but there are no significant differences between these two methods. Some reasons are discussed including test frequency, the influence of answering webpages and students’ mental state, and the experiment lasting periods, etc. However, students are all in favor of online-based testing and hope it will be continuing used in the English teaching and learning. Limitation of this study is discussed and some suggestions about online-based testing in formative assessment for further research are provided by the author.
