Qs: Longitudinal Studies & Grammar Instruction

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

I am working on a project that looks at grammar instruction (specifically
within ESL/EFL in my case, but references dealing with other languages are
very welcome).

I am looking for sources in the literature that discuss or provide research
on the need for longitudinal studies (versus pre-test / brief period of
instruction / post-test / later post-test) to determine the efficacy of
grammar instruction.

To be completely clear: as well as any actual longitudinal studies, I am
interested in sources that provide arguments for (or against) the need for
longitudinal studies to adequately judge the usefulness of grammar instruction.
