Abstract

Peer feedback is one of the commonly practised pedagogical
approaches in writing classes. It can be seen as a powerful tool to
provide students with an authentic audience who give different views
on their writings and, thus, able to increase the student writers'
confidence and motivation. The aim of this exploratory classroom
study was to investigate how peer feedback was valued in a writing
course. It also explored the potential benefits of peer feedback
application in the writing class. The findings reveal that peer
feedback was well-received by the students as it gave them the
benefits of additional point of views from a wider audience. However,
the findings also show that peers' linguistic competence, attitude
and cultural values could affect the value and validity of the
feedback which, in turn, could affect the effectiveness of this
approach.
