Quick Overview

The EDIT Strategy enables students to find and correct errors on assignments created with a word processor. Students learn to enter their first draft into a word processing program, perform a spell check, run through the COPS Questions (which are related to capitalization, overall appearance, punctuation, and substance of the paper), and make the needed corrections. (2010, 98 pages)


In a randomized control study with 22 upper elementary and middle school students with learning disabilities, upon mastering the strategy, students were able to detect and correct 80 percent of the errors in a passage, compared to 28 percent of the errors before they learned the strategy. Students who did not learn the strategy had five times more errors in their written work than students who learned the strategy. Learn More
