Abstract:

A statistical analysis was conducted to investigate and evaluate the relationship of English comprehension levels of foreign students with their graduate academic performances at the Naval Postgraduate School. In this study, English comprehension level test scores of foreign students were correlated with the final academic grades received at the school. The results obtained revealed a positive, but marginally useful, relationship between the two variables. The results were also analyzed by curricula subgroups and by military rank.
