Abstract—Formative assessment reform is an important tool that can bring about a fundamental change in the traditional education system. It is beyond question that this measure will set new scientific objectives in education. Given this probable advantage, formative assessment is a necessary step that will align our methods with international practice. It is all the more crucial in light of the international character of computer science as a discipline; hence, it has substantial practical applications. Consequently, in order to meet international standards, we should remedy the existing serious limitation in the traditional means of assessment. With the current practice of computer technology education, this paper will introduce a reform in formative assessment and propose a software framework of the web-based practice teaching administration platform for formative assessment. With a certain degree of versatility, scalability, flexibility and value of promotion, this system has been partially adopted in department of computer science.
