Uncovering Relationship between Strategy Use and Chinese Character Writing Performance among L2 Learners in Local and Foreign Contexts: A Cross-lagged panel Analysis

Project: Research project

Project Details


Using a cross-lagged panel design, this study investigates the concurrent and prospective effect of strategy use on Chinese character handwriting performance through two groups of adolescent L2 beginners: non-Chinese ethnic students from local schools in Hong Kong (CSL learners) and students from Vietnam (CFL learners). Quantitative and qualitative analyses are conducted on two sets of longitudinal data, in order to: (i) evaluate the significant effectiveness of strategy use on CCW performance among CSL and CFL students concurrently and overtime; (ii) examine whether the bidirectional relationship of strategy use and CCW performance vary between CSL and CFL; and (iii) depict how context affects the relationship of learning strategies and CCW development among L2 learners.
