Validity of Structure, Coherence, and Quality Measures in Writing.
Spencer, Sharon L.; Fitzgerald, Jill
Journal of Reading Behavior, v25 n2 p209-31 1993
Investigates convergent and divergent validity of inferences from selected measures of structure, coherence, and quality for compositions. Finds (1) strong support for validity of inferences from the structure measures, serious questions of inferences from coherence measures, and weak support for quality measures; (2) some evidence for the distinctiveness of the three measures; and (3) some method/halo bias.
