Research Archive: Correcting a Standard Paper vs. One's Own Paper

Question: Do expert and novice college writers correct their own papers as extensively as a they correct a standard paper?

Answer: “Found that expert college writers almost always correct more errors than  novice college writers with both groups correcting more errors on standard than on self-written essays.” GA Hull. 19983. P. 190.

Comment: Invariably, students correct other people’s papers more extensively than their own. Why? RayS.
