Title : Using Moodle Quiz to Assist Listening Assessment: EFL Students' Perceptions and Suggestions
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

This small-scale study focuses on investigating the perceptions of EFL students at a Vietnamese institution, i.e. the University of Foreign Languages, Hue University, about computer-assisted listening assessment. Specifically, the study aims at discovering what students thought about the use of the Moodle Quiz in creating and delivering listening tests. In addition, it is also purported to find out what problems students countered when taking Moodle-based listening quizzes and what can be done to help them overcome those problems.  A survey including both closed and open questions was designed and delivered to 73 first-year English majors who participated in the Listening 1 Module and took Moodle listening quizzes for both self-assessment and course assessment purposes. An interview was then conducted to collect deeper responses from 10 of those participants. The findings of the study show that just over half of students liked taking listening tests on the Moodle Quiz while the rest of the students either were indifferent or disliked this method of listening assessment. It is also found out that more students thought that Moodle-based listening quizzes should be used for self-assessment rather than course assessment. In comparison with traditional paper-based listening tests, students pointed out that Moodle Quiz facilitated listening assessment in terms of clear sound, better concentration, and quicker feedback. However, the study results also reveal that the most popular problems which students had when taking listening quizzes on Moodle involved students’ unfamiliarity with the tool, time pressure of the tests and facility-related trouble. Finally, based on students’ responses in the study, some suggestions were also made in order to improve the effectiveness of using Moodle Quiz in the listening assessment.
