Feedback on Writing

Annotated Research

Question: What are the different effects between peer and teacher feedback on writing?

Answer: “Found no significant differences in writing development between students who received peer feedback and students who received teacher feedback.” RS Boss. 1986. Pp. 424-425.

Comment: One way of interpreting this finding is to let students provide feedback on other students’ writing, thus saving teacher time. I’ll have to test this finding myself. But first I need to know what is meant by “writing development.” Raises more questions than it answers. RayS.
