Effects of Self-Evaluation on Written Composition Skills in Learning Disabled Children.
Brantley, Helen V.; Small, Donald
This study examined the relative effects of the self-evaluation process on written composition skills development among learning-disabled junior high students. It specifically evaluated the use of a structured self-evaluation process on the quality of short compositions. Experimental subjects (N=38) were taught the use of a self-evaluation checklist grid. Both experimental and control subjects (N=20) were instructed in written composition principles implied in the self-evaluation grid. Comparisons of compositions before and after training showed significantly higher mean ratings (by independent evaluators) of the introductory statements and somewhat better organization of ideas in compositions written by experimental subjects. The self-evaluation grid itself is included in the paper. (17 references) (DB)
