The LIFT project (Improving pre-university students’ performance in academic synthesis tasks with Level up Instructions and Feedback tool) is an NWO-funded project in which we study text quality and writing processes of syntheiss texts. The aim of the study is to:
- Map the development of text quality, writing processes and writer characteristics over the grades (Grade 10-11-12),
- Investigate the link between different aspects of the writing process and the quality of the synthesis text (and the relation to personal writer characteristics),
- Develop feedback on the both the product (text quality) and the writing process of synthesis texts (and to test its effect),
- Develop instruction to improve synthesis writing (and to test its effect).
