The purpose of this research was to gather evidence documenting the

effectiveness of the Web 2.0 technologies on student achievement. Data were collected

and asynchronous online interview) for the purpose of investigating the following

hypotheses:

1. The use of Web 2.0 technologies will enhance student knowledge, understanding, and

language abilities specific to reading, writing, speaking, listening and culture.

  • 2.

    Classroom community scores will serve as predictors relative to posttest scores.

  • 3.

    The use of Web 2.0 technologies will motivate students in language learning.

Findings of the Quantitative Study

Analysis of Quantitative Research Hypotheses

Data were gathered using the aforementioned measurement instruments for the

purpose of testing the stated hypotheses. To investigate hypotheses 1, 2, and 3 results

from the pretest, posttest, classroom community survey and asynchronous online

interview (n = 120) were examined using descriptive statistics, a repeated-measures 2 x 2

ANOVA where the factors were group (Web 2.0 and non-Web 2.0), level (Beginning and

Intermediate), and time (pretest and posttest) and hand coding. What follows is a detailed
