ESL Writing Assessment Prompts: How Students Choose.
Polio, Charlene; Glew, Margo
Journal of Second Language Writing, v5 n1 p35-49 Jan 1996
Examines how English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students choose a prompt from several options on a timed-writing exam. Researchers interviewed 26 students after observing them taking a writing exam. Findings indicate that students' background knowledge, question type, and topic specificity influence their decision and that time is not an overriding factor. (27 references) (Author/CK)
