What is 'improvement' in L2 French writing?

Abstract : When evaluating the quality of the output, oral or written in L2 (second language), you do it in the terms of complexity and accuracy (cf. Wolfe-Quintero et al., 1998). Improvement in L2 writing could therefore be expressed in an increase of complexity and accuracy. Nevertheless, recent L2 research shows that these evaluating tools are quite difficult to define and ambiguous to use (cf. Housen et al. forthcoming).
