Teachers' Perceptions of Students' Writing Quality

Annotated Research

Question: How does the number of compositions assigned affect teacher’s perception of students’ writing quality?

Answer: “Teachers’ perception of students’ writing ability was related to the number of compositions assigned.” NF Shumate. 1987. P. 438.

 Comment: I’m not sure what this finding means. I’m guessing that it means, with increasing numbers of assigned, supervised and graded writing, the teachers’ perception of writing improvement increases. RayS.
