Powell: Student perspectives on assessed writing
As part of the University of Warwick Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS), Laura Powell received funding for her project entitled 'Student perspectives on the nature of assessed academic writing.'
This study essentially replicated the Nesi and Gardner (2006) interviews with university tutors by asking similar questions to first, second and third year undergraduate students from the four disciplinary groups (Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences).
These interviews were conducted electronically, or face to face, and were recorded. See a selection of interview notes and transcriptions.

The findings from Powell's project have been presented at the University of Westminster Academic Literacies conference and at the URSS Annual Conference.
