English proficiency level among science students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

English Language proficiency of the science students of three major ethnics in Malaysia is measured from two perspectives, using the Malaysian University Entrance Test (MUET) as an objective assessment and the self-evaluation questionnaire as a subjective assessment with regard to reading, listening, writing and speech. This subjective assessment is found to be compatible with MUET scores based on the high correlation value. Students with higher scores are more agreeable to the notion that teaching and learning in English can improve the mastery of their English Language.
