A Typology of Written Corrective Feedback Types
Ellis, Rod
ELT Journal, v63 n2 p97-107 Apr 2009
As a basis for a systematic approach to investigating the effects of written corrective feedback, this article presents a typology of the different types available to teachers and researchers. The typology distinguishes two sets of options relating to (1) strategies for providing feedback (for example, direct, indirect, or metalinguistic feedback) and (2) the students' response to the feedback (for example, revision required, attention to correction only required). Each option is illustrated and relevant research examined.
