Revising On-Line: Computer Technologies and the Revising Process.
Hill, Charles A.; And Others
Computers and Composition, v9 n1 p83-109 Nov 1991
Discusses why recent studies of word processing offer contradicting results about computer-assisted revision. Examines how writers' cognitive processes for revision are affected by word processing. Finds that (1) experienced writers define revision to include more global-level changes, whereas students tend to focus on local-level concerns; and (2) computer use does not change these task definitions.
