Journal of Educational Research, v91 n5 p290-96 May-Jun 1998
Examined the relationship between handwriting style and handwriting speed and legibility. Analysis of three writing samples (narrative, expository, and copying) from 600 fourth to ninth graders indicated that students who used a combination of manuscript and cursive letters were the most fluent handwriters. Papers written with mixed letters generally received higher ratings for legibility. (Author/SM)
