The Relationship between Receptive and Expressive Subskills of Academic L2 Proficiency in Nonnative Speakers of English: A Multigroup Approach
Pae, Hye K.; Greenberg, Daphne
Reading Psychology, v35 n3 p221-259 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between receptive and expressive language skills characterized by the performance of nonnative speakers (NNSs) of English in the academic context. Test scores of 585 adult NNSs were selected from Form 2 of the Pearson Test of English Academic's field-test database. A correlated two-factor model was chosen as a baseline model and was tested for multigroup invariance. The results of this study suggest that a similar factor structure underpins adult NNSs' receptive and expressive linguistic performance across gender, but a different factor structure exists for high- and low-ability groups. Limitations and implications are discussed.
