Variations in Composing Behaviours of Academic ESL Writers in Test and Non-Test Situations.
Hall, Ernest
TESL Canada Journal, v8 n2 p9-33 Mar 1991
Contrasted texts and behaviors of six English-as-a-Second-Language writers, as they wrote a practice essay test, with their texts and behaviors in an actual English composition proficiency exam. The process-tracing techniques employed in this study enabled observation of composing behaviors with the focus on what the writers did in the two situations rather than on what they wrote.
