Longitudinal Analysis of Peer Feedback in a Writing-Intensive Course: a Pilot Study (10:00 - 10:30) LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 80 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Numerous studies have shown that peer feedback can improve writing. Most, however, focus on improvements on drafts of the same essay, and few consider more than one or two sessions of peer feedback. In a pilot study we considered the impact of peer feedback given and received on improvements in essay quality across ten different essays written by twelve students, all of which received peer feedback. In this small sample we did not find evidence that peer feedback was associated with improvements in essay quality, nor that this relationship changed over time, though we did see a strong relationship between comments received on one essay and those received on later ones. Participants will leave the session with a model for coding feedback comments and evaluating the impact of giving and receiving peer feedback on writing, and during the session will evaluate strengths and weaknesses of our research design and suggest improvements.
