This paper explores the use of an online survey tool as a learner response system (LRS) in university TOEIC courses. The study was conducted in three TOEIC Reading classes and three TOEIC Listening classes taught over three semesters (249 students). In each class, students were required to complete ‘online homework’ where they work on a set of assigned TOEIC questions from paper textbooks on their own before class. They were then required to submit the question numbers they answered wrong through a Google Form. In the classroom, the instructor focuses on the questions where the students have reported the most wrong answers. The surveys were conducted at the end of each course regarding the perspectives of using Google Forms to preview the class materials. Students reported high satisfaction with the use of Google Forms for homework. It has benefits that are typical of other LRSs: Enhancing perceived learning, increasing interest, focusing on students’ weaknesses, and saving time, with less technical difficulties. The method presented here can increase interest and engagement in otherwise one-directional lecture-centered classes as in usual test preparation courses.
