A Computer-Based Network for Writing Process Instruction of At-Risk Community College Students: A Second Year Evaluation.
Balajthy, Ernest
In its second year of operation (1988-1989 academic year), the Electronic Writing Center (EWC) of the Union County College in Cranford, New Jersey has expanded its capabilities and the amount of service it provides to at-risk students through the Computers in the Curricula Project. Major changes include: (1) increased numbers of classes and individual students using the computer network; (2) expansion of facilities to include the networking of more than double the number of microcomputers compared to the first year of the program; (3) addition of a backup memory storage system; (4) addition of a modem to allow exchange of student files with other networks; and (5) increased effort at data gathering and evaluation. Instructors using the network to teach writing note that the network has become more of an ordinary part of the curriculum and is now taken for granted. (Appendixes include a checklist for computer tutors, an AppleWorks manual, and evaluation instruments for writing attitudes, computer attitudes, and project involvement.) (RS)
