Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v5 n3-4 p319-27 1994
Investigates the ability of third-grade students to generate essays either by hand or with a word processing program. Indicates that the length and quality of the handwritten essays were superior to the computer-generated ones, suggesting that third-grade students were not as efficient in using a word processing program to generate essays as they were in writing them by hand.
