Composition Research

Empirical Designs

Janice M. Lauer and J. William Asher

Intended for writing instructors and those interested in composition research who do not have extensive empirical training, Composition Research explains ten of the most common empirical designs used in the social sciences. Illustrating each design with examples from two or three composition studies, it will enable instructors to distinguish between strong and weak empirical studies on writing. The book also features a bibliography of composition studies for each design, a chapter on measurement, a list of measurement instruments for composition, an appendix on statistical analyses, and a glossary of technical terms and symbols.
