Question: Does revision on word processors affect the quality of students’ writing?
Answer: “Total number of revisions made by students who wrote using computers was significantly greater than for those students who wrote by hand, but this difference did not influence the analytic scale for overall quality.” MJ Lytle. 1987. P. 214.
Comment: Increased number of revisions did not add up to better quality writing. Interesting. RayS.
