MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this study is to examine the relationship between the writing quality and self-regulation skills of secondary education students. In the context of this study, the students were given 16 composition subjects, and they were asked to write a composition about the subject they chose. Then, the students were asked to write another composition about the same subject one hour and one day later. The “Writing Quality Scale” was used in the assessment of the compositions of the students. The compositions of the students were given scores that varied between one and four in this rubric-style scale. Self-regulation skills and the habits of reading and using social media were also investigated in the study. Upon examining the results of the study, it was concluded that there is a high level of positive correlation between the writing skills and self-regulation skills and book reading habits of the students. In addition to this, it was seen that there was a high level of correlation between the selfregulation skills of secondary education students and the compositions they wrote in terms of writing quality. This shows that both the self-regulation and writing skills of the students can be developed through writing activities. © The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology.
