Abstract

Purpose of the study: Investigating the effect of corrective feedback on Indonesian students' writing accuracy was the aim of this present study.


Methodology: The methods used were a true experiment with a pretest-treatment-posttest-delayed posttest design was employed to address the research questions and a two-way ANOVA to examine.


Main Findings: The data collected was the grammatical accuracy scores from the three groups (comprehensive corrective feedback/CCF, selective corrective feedback/SCF, and non-grammatical feedback/NGF).


Applications of this study: Indonesian EFL students’.


Novelty/Originality of this study: EFL writing teacher is suggested to accommodate the integrated teaching of grammatical features in a communicative context.
