Support of Content and Rhetorical Processes of Writing: Effects on the Writing Process and the Written Product.
Butcher, Kirsten R.; Kintsch, Walter
Cognition and Instruction, v19 n3 p277-322 2001
Two experiments examined effects of content and rhetorical prompts on undergraduates' writing processes and the quality of their writing. Found that content prompts extended time spent writing and related to improved text quality. Rhetorical prompts demonstrated some influence on planning and global text quality only when presented during domain learning. Latent semantic analysis generated consistent judgments of writing quality. (Author/KB)
