Abstract: With regards to grading problems, traditional Online Tests do not provide fill-in-the-blank items. In lieu of this, this research hopes to demonstrate that if properly designed, an Online Test could achieve the same test effectiveness as manual paper-and-pencil tests. An Online Test system was built to provide both traditional and intelligent Online Test scoring mechanisms. In this research, 120 students participated in an experiment to compare the scoring effect differences. The result indicated that various scoring mechanisms have a significant effect on test scores. After analysing the students' feedbacks, the Online Tests' intelligent scoring mechanism proves to be the same as that of manual tests.
