Handedness differences in writing speed and theme length and evaluation Kelly, Ruth Elizabeth

Abstract

All the evidence contained in the investigation of 722 junior high school students points to the fact that there is no connection between the speed of writing and handedness; between the amount of written material produced in 5-minute themes and handedness; and between the effects of writing on subjective evaluations of 5-minute written themes and handedness. The figures show that the incidence of handicap in writing is approximately the same for both right- and left-handed groups.
