The Effects of Handwriting and Other Incidental Variables on GCE 'A' Level Marks in English Literature.
Massey, Alf
Educational Review, v35 n1 p45-50 Feb 1983
The effects of penmanship, complexity and accuracy of prose, length of answers, and use of quotations on marks awarded by English literature examiners were studied. The sex of students and examiners, untidiness, and prose complexity and accuracy were unrelated to grades. The results suggested that examiners avoid crediting students for presentation rather than content. (Author/SK)
