Vad kan skriftspråk avslöja?: -en jämförande studie av barn med och utan läs- och skrivsvårigheter
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim is to examine how written production differs between students with and without difficulties in writing. The study also examine how different difficulties within writing interplay. It is based on analysis of ten-year old student texts with 30 texts from both an experimental and a control group. Texts were written in 1991.
Both spelling, technique of writing and syntactic complexity differ between the groups. No significant correlations between different aspects of writing difficulties could be found in the experimental group. A possible explanation is that the students are unaware of their respective difficulties and therefore not hampered in the rest of the writing. The idea that metacognition schould be included as a component in the theory of "simple view writing" is discussed.
The group of students without difficulties in reading and writing has unexpectedly a higher proportion of phonetic unacceptable errors. This is discussed and an alternative explanation model of wriring development is introduced.
