Writer L1/L2 Status and Asynchronous Online Writing Center Feedback: Consultant Response Patterns
Weirick, Joshua; Davis, Tracy; Lawson, Daniel
Learning Assistance Review, v22 n2 p9-38 2017
This case study examines the differences in comments offered by asynchronous online writing center consultants to L1 and L2 speakers and examines the potential disconnects in consultant perceptions of their practice. The researchers collected and coded sample papers and interviewed participants to contextualize data from the quantitative portion of the study. The researchers found that in addition to differences between comments to L1 and L2 writers in each category of comment, there was a significant difference in the number of comments offered. Participants accounted for some--but not all--of these differences, indicating some implications for training and assessment.
