Literary Characteristics Which Constitute "Quality" in the Junior Novel: An Empirical Approach.
Marzano, Robert J.; DiStefano, Philip
To investigate the attributes associated with "quality," ten junior novels were rated by eleven raters for theme, characterization, plot, structure, style, setting, literary devices, readability, within-sentence modification, between-sentence modification, and overall quality. Results of factor and regression analyses indicated that quality in a junior novel is basically a function of the author's style, plot, structure, setting, and theme. Characterization, literary devices, and within- and between-sentence modification were not so strongly associated with differences in overall quality. (AA)
