The blended teaching mode has gradually gained its popularity among teachers and students in the “Internet+” era. The new teaching mode leads to the significant changes in many aspects of teaching, including teaching objectives, teaching design, teaching methods, teaching activities, learning assessment, etc. The reform of learning assessment is the key to ensuring the high teaching quality in the blended teaching mode. This study discusses the principles and technical support of constructing a learning assessment model in the blended teaching mode under the guidance of China’s Standards of English Language Ability (CSE), manages to construct an AAPP blended learning assessment model in the college English teaching, and examines its implementation and effect. The study concludes that the learning assessment model can make the student-centered, process-oriented and multiple assessment possible and integrate several items of learning ability, attitude, process and outcomes to make objective and comprehensive assessment. Its implementation has proven that the blended learning assessment model can promote students’ learning enthusiasm, improve their learning ability, and make them to learn autonomously and efficiently. However, there still exist some problems. The learning assessment model needs to be further developed and optimized in the future teaching research and practices.
