Essay Prompts and the ESOL Student.
Osburne, Andrea G.; Mulling, Sylvia
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v5 n1 p103-14 Jun 1994
Presents a survey of English-as-a-Second-Language students (n=142) for their preferences of writing prompt on essay tests and for other factors relating to their choices such as perceived difficulty of a topic. Findings reveal that these students, while not alert to potentially helpful syntactic clues in prompts, are probably using appropriate strategies when given a choice of prompt to write on.
