College Students' Experience in Online Asynchronous Peer Feedback in Writing
Keywords:online peer feedback, asynchronous learning, remote learning, process-oriented writing, COVID – 19
Writing is heavy, tedious, and difficult for college students. Likewise, writing instruction is equally arduous for teachers. The implementation of online and remote classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic becomes an opportunity for students to develop writing through their peers’ feedback. This study analyzes the college students’ experience and evaluation in online asynchronous peer feedback in writing. One hundred college students in free sections from a private university responded to an adopted, modified, and validated survey questionnaire and focus group discussions to evaluate and validate their experience in online asynchronous peer feedback in writing. The survey results underwent statistical analysis using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), version 20, to determine the weighted mean scores. Thus, the results revealed that the college students have a strong positive experience in online asynchronous peer-feedback in writing with the course facilitator of English language-based subjects. Though online asynchronous peer feedback in writing is an established learning approach, it is not yet maximized in all or most classes of college students. Nevertheless, the study concludes that the positive assumptions, experimentations, and explorations done in online peer feedback in writing remain valuable for college students, especially in their asynchronous writing development.
