Learning disabled students' composing under three methods of text production: Handwriting, word processing, and dictation

Eleven fifth- and sixth-grade learning-disabled students composed and revised stories using hand writing, dictation, and word processing. Dictated stories differed from other formats on product measures such as length, quality, and grammatical errors. Differences between handwritten and word-processed stories were found on the process measures of composing rate and revisions.
