Research design
Research Design Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

Quasi Experimental:Nonequivalent Control Group Design

Two groups: Designated treatment group (X1) and control group (X2) are pretested, exposed to a treatment (X), and posttested (O).

Symbolic Design:

O X1 O

O X2 O

Groups are not randomly assigned.


Threats to Internal Validity Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

  • History

  • Maturation

  • Testing – Pretest Sensitization

  • Instrumentation

  • Mortality

  • Statistical Regression

  • Differential Selection of Subjects

  • Selection-Maturation Interaction


Threats to External Validity Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

  • Ecological Validity

  • Generalizable Conditions

  • Pretest

  • Selection

  • Specificity of Variables

  • Multiple Treatments

  • Treatment Diffusion

  • Experimenter Effects

  • Reactive Arrangements/Participants Effects


Pretest posttest
Pretest & Posttest Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

  • Two Groups

  • Primary Language Assessment

  • Reading Assessments

  • Pretest Developmental Reading Assessment

  • Posttest Developmental Reading Assessment


Proposed data reading comprehension pretest and posttest
Proposed Data Reading Comprehension Pretest and Posttest Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?


Proposed quantitative data
Proposed Quantitative Data Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

Correlation between parents’ primary language attitudes and reading assessment.

Likert Scale Survey Question #4:

Is it important for your child to learn and maintain his/her native language?


Proposed data analysis
Proposed Data Analysis Education and English Language Learners’ Academic Achievement?

  • The chart shows that there is possibly a positive correlation between primary language attitudes and academic performance. The coefficient is 0.799414 rxy. The high X scores are paired with the high Y scores. The coordinates are close to the trend line of best fit, and it is fair. 

  • Therefore, if attitudes and support of parents concerning the use of the primary language are positive, students reading comprehension scores are high.
