FY Comp Effects
Rich Haswell has compiled a bibliography of studies that found gain in first-year composition courses through pre-post measurement, at http://comppile.tamucc.edu/gaininwriting. Areas of gain are identified. But the bibliography is far from complete. The composition profession badly needs a comprehensive review of such studies. It should include studies that did not find gains. And it should also include studies that local programs have conducted and written up but never published other than a copy sent to a dean.
