Composition and the Computer.
Zoller, Peter T.
The precise needs of the composition program at the University of California at Riverside prompted the experimental use of twelve grammar and syntax computer programs in a remedial English course. For this experiment, fifteen students, ranging in class level from a third-quarter freshman to a fourth-quarter senior, completed at least one program a week on the computer and also met once a week with the instructor for a two-hour writing workshop. Although accurate assessment of the experiment's effect upon student writing was not possible, student reaction to the course was favorable and included requests for the development of punctuation programs.
