Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine if students who are successful in one writing task are equally successful in another, different writing task and to describe some of the features students use in successfully completing these tasks. The study consisted of two major sections a correlational analysis and a description of writing samples. In the first section, a literature review discussed the differences between the modes and aims of discourse and then described, chronologically, the relatively few studies which have controlled aims andor modes in measuring student writing performance.
