Kim Epting publishes peer-reviewed article with students
Associate Professor of Psychology L. Kimberly Epting has published a peer-reviewed article, “Read and think before you write: Prewriting time and level of print exposure as factors in writing,” in the February issue of the Journal of Writing Research.
The paper was co-authored with four Elon alumni: Evan Gallena ’10, Stephanie Hicks ’10, Elizabeth Palmer ’11 and Traci Weisberg ’11. The study investigated how student writers who scored low on a validated measure of relative print exposure differed from students who scored high on that measure in terms of their writing and editing processes under conditions of different prewriting times, using methods that allowed changes in those processes to be anchored to individual typing speeds.
The Journal of Writing Research is “an international peer reviewed journal that publishes high quality theoretical, empirical, and review papers covering the broad spectrum of writing research.”
