Documents benefits of free "associative written activities" on students' writing. Experimental students used an individual associative prewriting activity, whereas the control group was not required to free associate. Compositions of students in first semester, second semester, fourth semester, and sixth semester and beyond were evaluated according to five different criteria: composition length; ease of expression; number of complex constructions; imagery; interesting ideas and thoughts.
