Helping Business Students Improve as Writers
Bell, Reginald L.; Quddus, Munir
Online Submission
We determined that a Center for Business Communication (CBC) had a significant impact on helping college of business students improve as writers. The variables were labeled college grade levels, male vis-a-vis female, frequency of visits, reasons for visits, pre-diagnostics vis-a-vis post-diagnostics, and declared majors; they were tested for significant differences relating to the measures of language errors. We found statistically significant differences among students' frequency of visits, reasons for visits, pre-diagnostics vis-a-vis post-diagnostics, and male vis-a-vis female on the measures of total language errors. We conclude the CBC contributed to reducing language errors (noise) in College of Business students' writing. An appendix presents the "CBC Diagnostic and Numeric Assessment Rubric" used to evaluate the pre-diagnostic and post-diagnostic writing samples. (Contains 1 exhibit and 3 tables.)
