The Impact of IELTS Scores on Performance at UniversityName:Institution:Course:Tutor:Date:The Impact of IELTS Scores on Performance at UniversityIntroduction For this particular assignment, I chose the article entitled “The Impact of IELTS Scores on Performance at University,” by Vicki Feast published in 2002 in the International Education Journal. This article is based on a research into whether English language proficiency levels of international students do influence their academic performance at university. The study is particularly based on the international students pursuing university education in Australia. After giving a summary of Feast`s article, I will go on to give an analysis and discussion of the issues and dilemmas arising from the paper. Significance of the TopicFeast (2002) begins his paper by pointing it out that due to the growth in the education sector since, the Australian government support to university education has declined on a per capita basis. Full public funding of the Australian education now requires more billions of money per year. This has made the fees paid by university students, especially international students, an important source of university revenue. On top of the funding issue, there is a moral and financial need to ensure that the fees paying international students succeed. To ensure this, the Australian education policy makers have set a standard for international students who want to pursue education in Australian universities. Such students must achieve a minimum of between 6.0 and 7.0 of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score. This is due to the increased body of literature which suggests that there is a correlation between English language proficiency and academic success. Based on such claims, the Australian education policy makers are in fact planning to increase the IELTS score for university students who want to pursue education in Austrian universities. This has raised a need to investigate into whether English language proficiency levels, as measured by IELTS scores, of international students and their academic performance at university, as measured by Grade Point Average (GPA). Literature ReviewFeast (2002) notes that previous researches have produced varied results on the impact of English proficiency tests on academic performance. For instance, studies such as those of Criper and Davies (1988) and Kerstjens and Nery (2000) have shown that there is a weak relationship between IELTS and GPA. However, in the Australian context and specifically in University of Melbourne, Hill and his colleagues (1999) established that there was moderately a strong relationship between IELTS and GPA. Other studies, such as that of Gibson and Rusek (1992) suggest that IELTS are not valid measures for English performance.Research Questions What is the relationship between English language proficiency levels (as measured by IELTS scores) of international students and their academic pe...
