Abstract

This paper describes a CALL course for EFL students at a Japanese university in which Moodle quiz activities were used in conjunction with NanoGong (a sound-recording plugin) to simulate TOEFL iBT-style speaking and writing exercises. In addition to describing and sharing our experience implementing the course, we also share survey and interview feedback from students, which touches upon themes such as learner anxiety toward peer assessment and a positive response toward the use of simplified scoring rubrics. We conclude with some practical suggestions for teachers interested in carrying out iBT training with Moodle in their CALL rooms.
