Research Archive: Skill in Writing Different Types of Papers

Question: Do students write different types of papers equally well?

Answer: “Examined texts written by college freshmen on five different topics, each requiring different types of cognitive, linguistic and textual manipulations and found individual rank within one writing condition did not predict rank within another.” SB Kucer. 1983. P. 191.

Comment: Every type of writing offers new and different challenges. That’s why we continue to learn to write throughout our lives. RayS.
