Online Challenge versus Offline ACT
Peckham, Irvin
College Composition and Communication, v61 n4 p718-745 Jun 2010
This article compares essays written in response to the ACT Essay prompt and a locally developed prompt used for placement. The two writing situations differ by time and genre: the ACT Essay is timed and argumentative; the locally developed is untimed and explanatory. The article analyzes the differences in student performance and predictive validity. (Contains 3 tables, 6 figures, and 10 notes.)
