Abstract

The paper describes how statistics were employed in language testing research to explore the effect of two test method variables of foreign language reading comprehension tests on test takers’ reading comprehension performance. Statistical procedures were applied at three stages of the research: in the validation of the main research instruments, i.e. the reading tests (1), in grouping the participants into four comparable groups (2), and in analysing the participants’ test performances on two reading comprehension tests (3). Statistics and qualitative data analyses show that task type and native language use as test method variables, rarely have a statistically significant affect separately, but may rather exert a joint effect on performance.
