Writing Process and Revision

Annotated Research

Question: Does teaching the writing process increase the number of fourth-graders’ revisions in their writing?

Answer: “Found differences in total number of revisions students made, but not in writing quality.” PJ Austin, 1987. P. 209.

Comment: Seems to suggest that just because students revise more frequently, the quality of writing does not necessarily also increase. RayS.
