The Strategies Approach: Effective for Reviewing Grammar and Punctuation Concepts
Quible, Zane K.
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v50 n3 p180-191 Fall 2008
This article is based on results of a quasi-experimental study in which the efficacy of the strategies approach for reviewing grammar and punctuation concepts was assessed in a business communication course. The control group studied rules-based review materials; the treatment group studied strategies-based review materials. On the three sets of collected data, students in the treatment group performed at a statistical level significantly higher than their counterparts in the control group.
