Abstract AR

من خلال هذا المقال أردنا أساسا البحث في مدى مساهمة التحصيل الدراسي في تطوير الفعالية الثقافية بين الطلاب.

لتحقيق هذا الهدف، اخترنا مقياس الفعالية بين الثقافات كأداة البحث الخاصة بنا حيث تم توجيه استبيان إلى ستين طالبا في السنة الثالثة في قسم اللغة الإنجليزية في جامعة قسنطينة، مقسمين إلى مجموعتين وفقا لتحصيلهم الأكاديمي باللغة الإنجليزية : طلبة ذوو تحصيل عالي و طلبة ذوو تحصيل متدني، و ذلك لغرض قياس قدرات و مهارات معينة ينظر إليها على أنها مكونات لا غنى عنها في بيئة متنوعة ثقافيا.

أظهرت البيانات التي تم جمعها على أن الطلاب ذوي التحصيل الدراسي العالي هم أكثر فعالية من الناحية الثقافية من الطلاب ذوي التحصيل الدراسي المنخفض.

Abstract EN

Attaining communication objectives during intercultural communication entails intercultural effectiveness.

Lately and due to globalization, it became a must to posses this ability to communicate interculturally, especially for English language learners who are expected to master and use the language worldwide.

However, one does not know whether being an interculturally effective person entails having a good academic achievement, knowing that the mastery of a language is a crucial element in many situations.

For such reason, we aimed basically, through this paper, to investigate the extent to which academic achievement may contribute to developing the students' intercultural effectiveness.

To attain such an aim, we selected the intercultural effectiveness scale as the research tool.

It was addressed to sixty (60) third year students of English in the Department of English at Constantine University, divided into two groups according to their high or low academic achievement in English for the purpose of measuring particular capacities and skills viewed as indispensable components in a culturally diverse environment.

The analysis of the data gathered has showed the intense the impact of high academic achievement on the students' intercultural effectiveness; in other words, it has been confirmed that students with high academic achievement are more interculturally effective than students with low academic achievement.

Abstract FRE

Nous avons essentiellement cherché, dans le présent article, à déterminer dans quelle mesure la réussite scolaire pouvait contribuer au développement de l’efficacité interculturelle des étudiants.

Pour atteindre un tel objectif, nous avons choisi l’échelle d’efficacité interculturelle comme outil de recherche dans laquelle nous avons impliqué soixante (60) étudiants de troisième année de licence au département d’anglais à l’Université de Constantine.

Les soixante participants ont été sélectionnés sur la base de leurs résultats scolaires en langue anglaise afin de pouvoir mesurer leurs capacités et leurs compétences particulières considérées comme éléments indispensables dans un environnement culturellement diversifié.

L’analyse des données recueillies a montré que les étudiants ayant un niveau de réussite scolaire élevé sont plus efficaces sur le plan interculturel que les étudiants ayant un faible niveau de réussite scolaire.
