Individual Differences in Writing: Implications of Translating Fluency.
McCutcheon, Deborah; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v86 n2 p256-66 Jun 1994
In 2 experiments involving 271 elementary and middle-school students with greater and lesser writing skills, components of the writing-translating process were examined. Skilled writers showed more fluent sentence-generation processes and were faster on lexical decision-making tasks. Fluent translating may help reduce the working-memory load during writing. (SLD)
