A Study of EFL College Students’ Acceptance of Mobile-Based Listening Assessment
Chae young Mun
Acceptance and intention to use mobile learning is a topic of growing interest in the field of education. The present study was intended to explore the feasibility of mobilebased listening assessment as well as the learners’ attitudes. The participants involved in the study were 40 Korean university students from Seoul. The study investigated the effects of the listening test administered via mobile phone compared to a paperbased test and examined the extent of the listening format’s influence on test performance. The paper created the listening test using ‘Google Form’, and the following survey. The listening comprehension test was 25-question multiple choice questions and the survey consisted of 10 items probing ‘Perceived Ease of Use’, ‘Mobile Self-Efficacy’, ‘User Interface’ and ‘Behavior Intention to Use’. The results showed that there was no significant difference in performance between the two formats in general; however, a statistically significant difference was found through the analyses of separate listening parts. The results also indicated mixed attitudes towards mobile-based listening assessment (MBLA) on the side of the learners; the concerns were mainly regarding perceived trustworthiness and fairness of mobile devices. Lastly, the study discusses the pedagogical implications for m-learning materials design and makes suggestions for future research.
