Legitimizing Peer Response: A Recycling Project for Placement Essays (Staffroom Interchange).
McKendy, Thomas F.
College Composition and Communication, v41 n1 p89-91 Feb 1990
Describes a composition course in which students questioned their placement in remedial instruction based upon holistic evaluation of a single essay. Notes that, when students were assigned to judge the same essays, results correlated closely with the earlier evaluations. Suggests that the exercise made students more open to peer response and criticism. (SG)
