Abstract


ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN READING ANXIETY AND PERFORMANCE ON IELTS READING COMPREHENSION ITEM TYPES
This article reports a study investigating the existence of any statistically significant correlations between the reading anxiety level and L2 learners’ overall performance on IELTS reading comprehension and on IELTS reading comprehension item types. Initially, 94 participants (73 females, 21 males) took part in this study. The Persian version of the Foreign Language Reading Anxiety Scale (FLRAS) was administered along with a General Training Reading Paper of IELTS. To exclude outliers, two box-and-whisker plots were drawn. As a consequence, just two individuals were excluded and the final sample consisted of 92 participants. Based on the Pearson product moment correlation, we found that there was a strong negative correlation between the reading anxiety level and overall performance on IELTS reading comprehension. It was also discovered that there was a significant negative correlation between the reading anxiety level and performance on IELTS reading comprehension item types including skimming, scanning, classification, table-completion, and true/false. The findings of the study have implications for L2 teaching and assessment.
