This study investigated student attitudes towards peer review in a university level English as a Second Language writing class. In each peer review session, students provided feedback on peer essays focused on content, organization, language use, vocabulary, and mechanics using a peer review worksheet. At the culmination of one semester implementing peer review on essay drafts, thirteen students completed a 40 item questionnaire rating statements on a 4-point Likert scale. The 40 items were divided into two parts. Part 1 included 16 statements focused on usefulness, motivation, and the five areas of writing. Part 2 comprised of 24 statements focused on enjoyment and student attitudes towards giving and receiving feedback. Results indicate favourable student perception on usefulness, motivation, enjoyment, and receiving feedback. Implications for teaching also discussed.
