Writing and Revising Persuasive Documents: Cognitive Demands.
Glynn, Shawn M.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n4 p557-67 Aug 1982
In two experiments, college students wrote preliminary and final drafts of a persuasive document. Elimination of sentence-formation and sequence operations produced corresponding increments in persuasive argument production, with average-ability writers benefiting more than low-ability writers. Comparatively few new arguments were constructed during revision. (Author/BW)
