Abstract[[abstract]]With the growth of information and network technology, the integration of information technology and teaching will play an important role in education scheme. Using e-learning platform in teaching and assessment has become more popular. Information education is one of important issues in Grade 1-9 Curriculum, the main purpose is to improve teaching efficiency and train the students’ ability in using information technology by applying information technology in teaching. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to build an e-learning and assessment system for social science courses that can promote the quality of teaching and the students’ learning efficiency. In this research, the students’ learning efficiency for social science courses between “e-learning and diagnostic assessment for teaching” and “traditional teaching” are analyzed. This research adopted ADDIE model to design curriculum and experimented with pre-test and post-test quasi-experimental design. The participants of this experiment are the fifth-grade students of an elementary school in Nantou County. There are 60 students, and they are divided into two groups, one is experimental group with e-learning and assessment system on Moodle instruction platform, the other is control group with traditional instruction. This research applies “e-Learning and assessment system for social science courses” as main experimental method to analyze the learning efficiency of two group students between pre-test and post-test, and the questionnaire survey is implemented for the teachers and students. The results of this paper are listed as follows: 1. In social science teaching: On Moodle instruction platform, using e-learning and assessment system is more efficient than traditional instruction. 2. Teachers and students are satisfied with the accuracy and convenience of e-Learning and assessment system. E-Learning and assessment system applied in social science instruction does not only enhance the learning efficiency of the students but also reduce the teachers’ instruction pressure. This system is expected to be improved and developed sustainably, and is provided as a reference in future research.
