Abstract

This paper is a study of a new teaching design which conducted on non-English- major students at universities of technology in Taiwan who take English as required courses, and they need to acquire an English proficiency certificate to help them get employed after graduation. The approach combined classroom teaching, on-line learning, and Internet testing within curriculum to enforce learning effect. Data were collected from: (1) a questionnaire on students’ acceptance on the test-oriented English instruction, (2) four Internet-testing records, (3) a pretest and a posttest, and (4) a survey on students’ perceptions. Our findings revealed that over 90% of the students agreed teachers should focus on test-related materials, and 97% practiced and 62% tested on the Internet at least four times. Besides, by examining their scores between the pretest and the posttest, 89% participants improved. Most importantly, students’ responses showed significance toward the 3-in-1 teaching practices.
