Abstract

The main purpose of this research project is to identify the major problems of large class on classroom management that Intermediate and Advanced English students of the Foreign Language Department face at the main Campus of the University of El Salvador during term II – 2011. The investigation was aimed to answer the following question: What are the major problems of large class on classroom management that Intermediate English students experience at the Main Campus of the University of El Salvador during term II-2011? The purpose of this research project was to verify the following hypothesis: Discomfort, lack of control, lack of individual attention, evaluation, and learning effectiveness are the major problems of large class on classroom management of Intermediate and Advanced English students of the Foreign Language Department at the Main Campus of the University of El Salvador during term I-2011. This was a quantitative research study because mathematical model and hypotheses pertaining to the phenomenon were employed. Besides, the causal-comparative research design was used to determine how the independent variable “large class” affects the dependent variable “classroom management”. The unit of study was 195 students from the large Intermediate and Advanced English classes of the Foreign Language Department at the Main Campus of the University of El Salvador during term I-2011. To test the hypothesis, three instruments were used to collect data, which were processed and analyzed. Subsequently, it was found out that problems of discomfort, control, individual attention, and learning effectiveness exist in the large groups of Intermediate English I and Advanced English I during term II-2011. Therefore, classroom management is affected significantly only by the problem of lack of control in such large groups. Thus, some recommendations were formulated from the discussion of the results to help students to overcome and face those problems.
