The Psychological Structure of Creative Writing.
Biggs, J. B.; Collis, K. F.
Australian Journal of Education, v26 n1 p59-70 Apr 1982
A taxonomy is proposed for evaluating the quality of learning in terms of a composition's structural complexity. Five writing structure levels are distinguished (incoherent, linear, conventional, integrated, and metaphoric) and samples of high school students' compositions illustrate each. Implications for both the psychology and teaching of writing are proposed. (Author/MSE)
