In a study of composition skills of students in the highest grades of primary school four experimental tasks were administered to 32 subjects. Each was designed with the purpose to find specific knowledge and strategies for producing written text that are available to children of this age. In all tasks the children were asked to concentrate exclusively on certain difficulties of text production, to wit: a) the selection of global ideas, b) the organisation of ideas, c) the translation of ideas into written sentences, d) reviewing and revising text.A theoretical rationale for the task construction is given and one of the tasks (a) is explained more fully. Results of this task, based on a classification of arguments the students gave for selecting ideas are reported and some conclusions are given focussing on the implications of the study for writing education.
