Writing Lab Usage Data

Welcome to the Research area of the Purdue OWL. This section houses scholarship and research - past and present - on OWLs. Please check back as we continue to expand this section.

This page hosts selected presentations of Purdue Writing Lab's usage data, which shows just a few of the many ways the Writing Lab significantly impacts Purdue students. The drop-down menus allow you to filter results based on your interests. This research was developed in collaboration with the Purdue Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Efficacy. We thank, in particular, Brent Drake, Monal Patel, and Meng Deng for their support and mentorship.
