Johnny Still Can't Write, Even If He Goes to College: A Study of Writing Proficiency in Higher Education Graduate Students
Singleton-Jackson, Jill A.; Lumsden, D. Barry; Newsom, Ron
Current Issues in Education, v12 n10 2009
This study explored the extent to which graduate students enrolled in Higher Education courses were proficient at writing. A total sample size of 97 graduate students from programs of Higher Education served as the sample. To assess writing proficiency the SAT II: Writing Test, Part B was used. The graduate students in this sample did not score significantly higher on the SAT II: Writing Test, Part B than the typical high school senior whose scores enter into the norm group. (Contains 2 footnotes and 3 tables.)
