Doctor of Arts (D.A.)
The study involves a questionnaire gathered from 234 employees of three south Florida business and industrial organizations. The questionnaire solicited demographic data on the respondents and tested the respondents' use and value of eighteen writing strategies recommended by recent business writing textbooks. The study has three major findings: (1) The respondents are a varied group, who write often and write within varied and shifting contexts of readers, subjects, texts, and purposes. (2) In general, the respondents use the writing strategies to the degree that they value them. (3) In general, the respondents do not agree with recent business writing textbooks about the relative value of the various writing strategies.
