Abstract: This study investigates the effects of teacher written feedback on students’ writing in the Singapore primary school context. We discuss different types of teacher feedback – advice, criticism, and praise – and how successful each is in encouraging revisions by Primary 4 children. Quality of revision is discussed in terms of length and overall improvement in the revised compositions. Student attitudes are also explored through a questionnaire. The questionnaire responses provide some insight into why some types of teacher feedback encouraged more revision than others.
