It has been suggested that students have more autonomy in the feedback process by communicating their feedback preferences to the teacher or peers. This study evaluated the feedback requests made by Japanese university students to teacher and peer reviewers as well as the feedback received in response to the requests. The feedback requests made and the feedback received in a teacher feedback group and a peer feedback group were considered separately and also compared between the two groups. The presenter will provide theoretical background, explain the research methods and results as well as implications for both writing instructors and researchers.
