Causation or Correlation: A Reply to Oller and Perkins.
Upshur, John A.; And Others
Language Learning, v28 n1 p99-104 Jun 1978, Jun78
Agrees with Oller and Perkins (1978) that correlation and causation are not equivalent and that correlations between invalid measures yield no important conclusions. In addition, Oller and Perkins' arguments against the validity of self-report measurements are examined, as well as evidence for a causal relation between variance in affective variables and variance in second language attainment.
