Moreover, in comparison with the capability of analysis, it shows that low score group students are more benefited by the help of e-pen. The second experiment indicates whether‬‬ it is "e-pen" treated group, or "e- pen combined with the internet on the performance of the Japanese vocabulary scores of the treated group were higher than the "without e-pen without internet" control group.
