Abstract

Purpose – the purpose of this third paper in a series of articles is to analyse the impact of using Moodle distance learning tools for vocabulary consolidation and formative assessment on language teaching/learning process in full-time English for Specific Purposes (ESP) studies. For years test/examination-centred assessment has been embedded in education system in Lithuania. Recently formative assessment has been strongly advocated and more attention has been given to interactive teaching/learning process rather than summative assessment. A number of different formative assessment models have been developed and implemented all over the world. Formative assessment (FA) case studies are e-learning resource consisting of a case scenario involving decision-making steps and feedback.
