Design and Validation of Instruction in Question-Directed Narrative Writing, Developed through Discrimination Programming.
Lamberg, Walter J.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the problem of designing instruction in the process of composing. The scope of the study is limited to one kind of writing (the short, autobiographical narrative) and to one kind of instruction (a self-instructional program, developed by means of discrimination programing). Subjects for the study were 27 high school students. Results of the study indicated that three predicted changes related to improvement in the quality of "expansion" received considerable support, with the changes being statistically significant. The three other predications--two of which were related to improvement in the quality of "focus"--showed fewer gains or no gains at all. (RB)
