Reed, W. Michael; Burton, John K.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v4 n2 p270-83 Fall 1985
Examines how teacher evaluation effects students' willingness and motivation and hence the writing process. Analyzes results of a survey measuring student responses to several kinds of evaluation of their essays. Concludes that informal evaluation (e.g. peer evaluation, conferences, ungraded writing) improves students' attitudes. (JG)
