The COMP-LAB Project: Assessing the Effectiveness of a Laboratory-Centered Basic Writing Course on the College Level. Final Report, September 1, 1977 through August 31, 1979.
Epes, Mary; And Others
The COMP-LAB, a CUNY-based writing course combining classroom instruction with an autotutorial writing laboratory for students deficient in standard written English, is described and evaluated in this assessment. The background and purpose of the project are discussed in the first two sections, prior to an extensive description of the project itself in the third section. The fourth section of the report focuses on the outcomes and impacts of the project at its original site and at two transfer sites; and the need for implementing such a successful program in other institutions is stressed in the conclusion.
