Abstract

Surveys will be used to determine if there’s a correlation between the grade level of a student and the type of help they ask for in a writing lab. Students will make appointments to come to the lab and will bring their writing to the editors for revisions. Before editing begins, the student will take a pre lab survey to determine what they think they need help with and how confident they are in their writing. After editing has taken place, the student will take a post lab survey to determine the success of the lab . The data from the first survey, asking their grade level and what they needed help with, will be put into a spreadsheet to determine if there is a correlation or not. If there is a correlation, teachers of that grade will have the opportunity to incorporate aspects of writing into the curriculum. /
