This paper describes an online English language proficiency testing platform that uses Moodle-hosted selected and open response questions along with other useful features. These features include enhanced test security settings aided by the Safe Exam Browser; an embedded MP3 player for listening skills; and a split screen mode for reading tests. The paper highlights significant elements of this particular approach to testing as they apply to formal high-stakes e-exams (testing of learning) and for continuous assessment (testing for learning). Snapshots of sample online test materials illustrate these features. Issues of concern in the field of web-based, computer-assisted assessment will be discussed in light of experience gained from a recent pilot study in which this interface was used in a series of mock exams in 2015.
