Individualized Evaluation as a Method of Instruction to Improve Writing Ability in Freshman College Composition.
Farmer, William Lewis
Sixty students in four sections of freshman composition participated in a study comparing written corrections of student themes with oral, individualized evaluations in which the instructor explained problems and weaknesses in each theme and helped the student improve the writing. There were no other differences in the activities of the control and experimental classes. The first and final themes were typed as submitted and were rated by four independent evaluators for content, organization, mechanics, and overall quality. Results indicated significant differences, in favor of the individualized method, in organization, mechanics, and overall quality and differences, approaching significance, in content. (Author/AA)
