Writing the Critique, a Text about a Text.
Mathison, Maureen A.
Written Communication, v13 n3 p314-54 Jul 1996
Investigates how students in an upper-level sociology course wrote critiques and how their texts were evaluated by four professors in the discipline. Finds that students received higher scores if they found weaknesses in the source article, basing their judgments on disciplinary knowledge; and neither major nor educational level was a strong predictor of quality.
