Brown, James Dean; And Others
Written Communication, v8 n4 p533-56 Oct 1991
Investigates whether prompts and topic types affect writing performance of college freshmen taking the Manoa Writing Placement Examination (MWPE). Finds that the MWPE is reliable but that responses to prompts and prompt sets differ. Shows that differences arising in performance on prompts or topics can be minimized by examining mean scores and changing pairings. (PRA)
