The Effects of Handwriting, Spelling, and T-Units on Holistic Scoring with Implications for Dysgraphia
Hooten, Regina Gay
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Texas A&M University
This study examined the relationship of holistic scoring with handwriting legibility, spelling accuracy and number of T-units within compositions written by children in grades 3 through 6 using path analysis. A sample of 223 compositions was rated for handwriting legibility and composition quality, and coded for number of T-units and percentage of accurately spelled words. Number of T-units was consistently the strongest predictor of holistic scoring across the four grade levels. Handwriting legibility and spelling accuracy yielded varying results in different grade levels. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
