Paper-pencil peer-correction versus wiki-based peer-correction.

Czech Republic, ID LLCE2015-107

This research reports on the comparison of the students’ achievement and their attitudes towards the use of paper-pencil peer-correction and wiki-based peer-correction. Questionnaires and semi-structured interviews were utilised to gather information. The data suggest that students made considerable use of wikis and showed higher degrees of motivation in wiki-based peer-correction. Wikis not only better developed their writing skills, but also helped students recognise the importance of collaboration.

Keywords: peer-correction, wikis, writing skills, collaboration.
