Studies on Use of ICT in English Language Testing

As the language learning landscape changes with the increasing use of Information and Communication Technology, exploratory studies were carried out on English Language assessment in written and oral communications with a view to tap the affordances of technology. In a study involving Grade 9 students, a writing test was delivered via an e-platform, setting tasks that included electronic form-filling in authentic contexts with stimulus materials in the form of a notice and a simulated website. As for assessing oral communication, studies involving students in Grade 9 and 10 were carried out. The test comprised an on-screen passage for reading aloud and a short video clip which served as a stimulus for discussion. This paper presents the key considerations made in developing these tests as well as students’, views gathered from surveys and small group discussions.Keywords: English language testing, Information and Communication Technology, writing test, oral assessment
