Topic: Teacher and Student Feedback on Writing.

10-second review: Teacher and student feedback in end comments were about the same in quality and quantity.

Title: “A Validation Study of Students’ End Comments: Comparing Comments by Students, a Writing Instructor, and a Content Instructor.” MM Patchan, et al. Journal of Writing Research, 1 (2), 124-152, 2009.

Summary: “Concludes that peer feedback is fairly similar to instructor feedback, both in quality and quantity.”

Comment: Note that the comments were end comments only. Question is, did end comments by either students or instructors help students improve their writing? RayS.
