This study aimed to establish (a) whether teaching students revision skills provides benefit over and above teaching strategies for setting explicit goals for the communicative effect of their text, and (b) whether teaching students to adopt specific revision strategies provides benefits over revision instruction that focusses on increasing student...
Research has shown that writers seem to follow different writing strategies to juggle the high cognitive demands of writing. The use of writing strategies seems to be an important cognitive writing-related variable which has an influence on students' writing behavior during writing and, therefore, on the quality of their compositions. Several studi...
Background: The online management of writing processes is an important factor related to the composition of high-quality texts. In the present study we analysed the time that upper-primary students devoted to writing processes, the distribution of those processes during composition and the contribution of both aspects to text quality. Method: 12...
In this study we present a comparative report of two effective instructional programs focused on the improvement of upper-primary students' writing competence through the promotion of revision skills. Both programs shared the main aim but had two different approaches. We contrasted writer-focused instruction with reader-focused instruction. To prov...

Uno de los métodos online de mayor trascendencia en los últimos años para la evaluación del proceso de escritura es el estudio de la dinámica temporal de escritura a través del análisis de las pausas y ejecuciones. Además de ser uno de los métodos de naturaleza online menos intrusivos, proporciona información de gran valor sobre el proceso de escri...

Programs under this kind of instruction tend to have multiple components that include direct instruction, modeling and scaffolded practice. This...
Studies to improve practice and outcomes in grade 4-5-6 of primary education in The Netherlands: analysis of current practice and two yearlong interventions, including professional development programs and on the job coaching
This project represents a new stage in our research program, and seeks to apply the knowledge we have accumulated over the last decade to improving teaching/learning processes involved in the production of written syntheses from multiple texts as a means to promote learning. Among other objectives, we are aimed specifically to designand implement interventions to help university students to integrate information from multiple texts that present different positions on a controversial issue in both classroom and online teaching formats, and to evaluate their effectiveness.
