Cohen, Andrew D.; Brooks-Carson, Amanda
Modern Language Journal, v85 n2 p169-88 Sum 2001
Explored an alternative approach to short essay writing on language assessment tasks. Thirty-nine intermediate learners of French performed two essay writing tasks: writing directly in French and writing in the first language and then translating into French. Two-thirds of students did better on the direct writing task across all rating scales; one-third did better on the translated task. (Author/VWL)
