COMMUNICATIVE PROFICIENCY AMONG STUDENTS IN PANGASINAN STATE UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES

MARISSA E. SISON, M.A.Ed..

Abstract
English, as an international language, is used by most people all over the world. It is, in truth, the most
important language in the world today. In the Philippines, English speaking and writing skills are things that are
given priority by employers in the choice of job applicants. This study intended to determine the level of
communicative proficiency of 346 students in Pangasinan State University who were randomly selected through
a stratified random sampling. Communicative proficiency was measured by an instrument which was
researcher-made. The communication areas covered in this study were vocabulary, subject-verb agreement,
tense, spelling, sentence structure, and comprehension. Findings showed that the students are generally weakest
in sentence structure. They are lowly proficient in determining the order or proper arrangement of words in a
sentence. All students from the different curricular programs are either low or very low in proficiency in this
particular area of communication. Those enrolled in Engineering programs dominated those who are enrolled in
non-Engineering programs. Chi-square correlation test results show that communicative proficiency of the
respondents was significantly related to their year level. Therefore, more intensive training in sentence structure,
comprehension, tenses, and even spelling is needed, especially to non-engineering students.

Key words: communicative proficiency, communication, chi-square
