A Study of the Design and Implementation Effects of a Digital Platform for Writing Instruction Based on a Cognitive-Process Writing Model
This study set out to explore the design and implementation effects of a digital instructional platform based on a cognitive-process writing model. A quasi-experimental study with ANCOVA was conducted to explore the effects of implementing a digital writing-instruction platform. A four-point Likert scale questionnaire was used to collect data on the rate of adoption of the new platform. Two eighth grade classes from a junior high school in Taitung were selected as samples. The 68 students from these two classes were divided into an experimental group and a control group， each with 34 students; the experimental group was taught using the digital writing-instruction platform. The results indicated that the experimental group performed significantly better than the control group， as measured by the average scores from three writing examinations during the semester. Analyses of the adoption rate showed that (1) the operation of the digital instructional platform was not difficult; (2) the cognitiveprocess model for the digital writing-instruction platform had more advantages than the traditional model; and (3) the digital writinginstruction platform based on a cognitive-process writing model matched students’ writing habits， so that the rate of adoption was high.
