Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the use of a word processor for writing composition differed in the number of words and sentences when compared to handwriting composition samples. In addition, the study compared the types of words and sentences used in the writing samples. There is a need for empirical evidence on the effect of a word processor on children's writing. The subjects (N = 38) in the study were sixth-grade students at North Tama Elementary School, Traer, Iowa.
