Research Question: Does peer review followed by revision measurably improve writing skills in an upper division writing proficiency class?
Method: This study includes sixteen students in an upper division writing proficiency course, Applied Research Methods, in the Human Services Program. Students have several writing assignments in the course including two short essays, a literature review, and a final research proposal. Because the course is a writing proficiency course, students are expected to write a draft of the literature review, receive feedback, and make revisions before submitting the final paper.
