Structural Equation Model: Influence of Student-Related Factors on English Language Learning Performance
This paper explores the individual characteristics of students that affect their performance as learners of English. A structural equation model was constructed based on the hypotheses. Two hundred and fifty-four college students from Yanching Institute of Technology were selected as subjects for analysis. The results showed that improving students’ language learning ability, cognitive style, learning motivation, and self-efficacy could improve their English-learning outcomes. Moreover, it was found that individuals’ anxiety when learning had a negative effect on their motivation and learning outcomes in terms of English language learning, while self-efficacy had a positive effect on learning motivation.
