Documenting Improvement in College Writing: A Longitudinal Approach.
Haswell, Richard H.
Written Communication, v17 n3 p307-52 Jul 2000
Investigates normative longitudinal change in student writing during college. Selects nine measures as good representatives of nine factors--factors of independent and bound ideas, idea elaboration and substantiation, local cohesion, establishment of logical boundaries, free modification, fluency, and vocabulary. Finds that eight of the nine measures recorded statistically significant change when applied to first-year and junior-year writing. (SC)
