A Comparison of Tenth and Twelfth Grade Students' Essay Writing Performance.
Turner, Susan D.
A longitudinal study of advanced senior high students' writing abilities indicates that, over a three-year period, students exhibit significantly improved writing skills. Follow a continuous program of writing enhancement, graduating seniors exit the system with reasonable or better than reasonable skills in essay organization, sentence formation, word usage, capitalization, and punctuation. A feature analysis provides additional evidence of changed performance. As seniors, students write longer essays that contain lengthier sentences and a greater number of paragraphs. Data are presented in table form. (Author)
