|Subject:||Quantitative Research in Applied Linguistics|
|Question:||Hi, I'm Kisno from Indonesia and I work as a freelance applied linguist in Batam, Indonesia. I have some students that are still confused and stuck when doing a quantitative research in applied linguistics especially in the language assessment topic. They are now attending a literature major in their university but they get nothing from the campus. Most of them are doing a two-variable language testing, but in fact their lecturer forces them to apply three-variable research which actually it is only two variables, for the sake of plagiarism by the lecturer. What they do not get is the solution upon the problem. Would anyone help me to find out the best solution upon their problems? Is there any protection upon their research or is there anyone intending to accept and publish their work before their paperwork are stolen? Thank you.|
