Liqun GAO, Ying QI


The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of the application of online vocabulary testing mode in College English learners’ vocabulary learning. The subjects are the first year non-English majors in a comprehensive university in Beijing. The online testing mode and the traditional paper-based testing mode are designed and applied to the experimental group and the control group respectively. The experiment lasts for 12 weeks. Data are analyzed with SPSS windows 19.0. The results show that the application of the online vocabulary testing mode is conducive to improving the effect of vocabulary acquisition, arousing college English learners’ interest in vocabulary learning and freeing teachers from the heavy load of marking numerous papers.
