This study has two main aims: Developing a web-based English testing program and investigating its effects on elementary English teaching. For this purpose, 35 children in the 4th grade participated in the 12-week experiment in which the subjects, after English class at school, performed tests regularly at home using computers. The children were compared with a comparison group who took similar English classes but did not perform any tests. Data were also obtained by questionnaires and interviews focusing on the students' achievement, interest in English, frequency of self-study at home, confidence in English, and motivation to learn English. The statistical analysis of the data did not yield clear conclusions. Interviews and personal contact with the children suggest, however, notable differences. The experimental group who took web-based tests tended to show better achievement and more positive attitude toward English and English learning than did the comparison group. It hints at potential usefulness of web-based testing programs in elementary English education
