Perceptions of Peer Review Using Cloud-Based Software
Andrichuk, Gjoa
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v25 n2 p109-125 Apr 2016
This study looks at the change in perception regarding the effect of peer feedback on writing skills using cloud-based software. Pre- and post-surveys were given. The students peer reviewed drafts of five sections of scientific reports using Google Docs. While students reported that they did not perceive their writing ability improved by being peer reviewers, they observed that having others peer review their work did improve their writing. They also indicated that they preferred to use cloud-based tools to paper and their comfort level sharing their personal information increased. Future studies should involve digital literacy pedagogies to improve collaborative writing skills.
