Countable Indices of Writing Quality: Their Suitability for Screening-Eligibility Decisions.
Parker, Richard; And Others
Exceptionality: A Research Journal, v2 n1 p1-17 1991
Five countable indices of writing quality were examined for their suitability in making special education screening-eligibility decisions, based on writing samples from 2,160 students. Even the best index was only moderately efficient. "Percentage of words spelled correctly" was best overall, and "percentage of correct word sequences" was best for grades 3-11. (Author/JDD)
