6.2.1. Writing Achievements
supports Pishghadam & Akhondpoor, 2011
due to writing course
due to the concentration on English ability of participants
little difference on English anility among participants
not variant enough
little difference exists in writing anxiety
"second language writing anxiety is a language-skill-specific anxiety."
Cheng, et al, 1999
writing anxiety can be due to lack of skill
writing anxiety is varied as the variance of TOEFL iTP score
since the writing abilities among participants were concentrated, the differences in writing anxiety can be little.
"TOEFL iTP can be an indicator of writing ability." Motlaq & Egresh, 2016
6.2.2. Anxiety Scoring Paper
between SOP and ordinary class anxiety
higher SOP, the more anxiety feel in ordinary class
English class anxiety is higher than ordinary. (Table 8)
English class puts more pressure on students
anxiety difference between high and low in English class is smaller than that of ordinary class anxiety
this might be due to how high and low feel anxiety in ordinary class
"SOP is correlated to school achievements."
Stoeber & Rambow, 2007
SOP has concern not only in English, but in ordinary.
difference between high and middle, middle and low in 10 and 15 min
Shape of mountain H,M,L = 3.867,6.286,4.467 in 15 min
can demonstrate "SOP is an ambivalent form of perfectionism." Stoeber, Feast & Hayward, 2009
in this study
SOP worked as negative role for middle and low
SOP worked as positive role for high SOP group
Kobori & Tann, (2012); Stoeber, Feast & Hayward (2009); Hewitt & Flett (1991)
SOP has correlation with negative characteristics
SOP has correlation with positive characteristics
Not only at the degree f anxiety, the writing achievement will be also affected
hypothesis: the higher SOP, the higher anxiety
correlational analyses, although not valid = negative correlation
6.1. Whole Group
r > 0.297
p < 0.05
but the number of words and SOP
"the higher SOP, the more words." = positive correlation
"the higher perfectionism, the fewer words."
= Negative correlation
"perfectionism was associated with poorer writing performance" Frost & Marten, 1990
"perfectionism is related to test anxiety"
Shokrpour, Zareii, Zahedi & Rabat, 2011
Conflict Negative vs. Positive
first, not perfectionism, but SOP
"SOP is not correlated with test anxiety as SPP is."
Stoeber, Feast & Hayward, 2009
second, situation failed to work
not persuasive enough
