Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v55 n2 p60-72 Sum 2000

Notes students improved to the point where the gap in skills between ability groups was eliminated. Finds objective tests of mechanical skills did not predict students' writing ability. Suggests writing samples are better for placement and for measurement of writing ability. (SR)
