I’m interested in using corpus analysis as a research approach to inform writing pedagogies and feedback practices. Working specifically with larger classes where writing assessment is conducted by teaching assistants, I inquire into potentially misaligned feedback practices amongst graders with the goal of helping facilitate a more reliable assessment.
