Research design

Research Design

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

  • History

  • Maturation

  • Testing – Pretest Sensitization

  • Instrumentation

  • Mortality

  • Statistical Regression

  • Differential Selection of Subjects

  • Selection-Maturation Interaction

Threats to External Validity

  • Ecological Validity

  • Generalizable Conditions

  • Pretest

  • Selection

  • Specificity of Variables

  • Multiple Treatments

  • Treatment Diffusion

  • Experimenter Effects

  • Reactive Arrangements/Participants Effects


Pretest posttest

Pretest & Posttest

  • 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


Proposed quantitative data

Proposed Quantitative Data

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

  • 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.
