On and Off Computer Writing of Eighth Grade Students Experienced in Word Processing.
Owston, Ronald D.; And Others
Computers in the Schools, v8 n4 p67-87 1991
Students in four eighth grade communications arts classes wrote two stories--one using a word processor and one written manually. Participants' attitudes toward writing and editing were assessed. Stories were graded for overall competence, organization, support of ideas, and mechanics; a subsample received detailed analysis. Word processed stories were significantly better in overall competence and mechanics. (38 references) (MES)
