Kajian ini mengkaji tentang pemboleh-pemboleh ubah pengetahuan leksikal (keluasan dan kedalaman perbendaharaan kata pasif, keluasan dan kedalaman perbendaharaan kata aktif terkawal, keluasan dan kedalaman perbendaharaan kata aktif bebas) dan pemboleh-pemboleh ubah kecekapan leksikal (kecekapan perbendaharaan kata pasif, kecekapan perbendaharaan kata aktif terkawal, dan kecekapan perbendaharaan kata aktif bebas) melibatkan pencapaian Bahasa Inggeris Akademik dalam kalangan pelajar terpilih di Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). Kajian ini menggunakan kaedah tinjauan keratan rentas secara kuantitatif. Peserta kajian terdiri daripada 155 orang pelajar kursus Bahasa Inggeris Akademik yang dipilih dari USM menggunakan kaedah pensampelan rawak berstrata. This study aims to examine the relationship between lexical knowledge towards understanding tertiary students’ academic lexical competence. The study investigates the lexical knowledge variables (passive vocabulary’s breadth and depth, controlled active vocabulary’s breadth and depth, free active vocabulary’s breadth and depth) and lexical competence variables (passive vocabulary competence, controlled active vocabulary competence, and free active vocabulary competence) pertaining to the Academic English performance of selected Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) tertiary students. This study adopts the quantitative-based cross sectional survey method. The participants consisted of 155 tertiary students of the Academic English course chosen from USM which were selected based on the stratified random sampling method.
