Abstract

Written feedback in academic writing is an essential factor that enables teacher and students to interact with each other in order to improve students’ writing. This research aims to find out the types of written feedback the teachers use for students’ academic writing, the most useful feedback, and effective feedbacks as perceived by students to help them improve academic writing. The present study employed a descriptive qualitative research design. To collect the data, interview was used. Participants of the research were five students in an English Education Department in a private university in Yogyakarta. During the data collection process, the students were in the process of writing their undergraduate thesis as the fulfilment for undergraduate degree. The findings indicated that there were three types of written feedback i.e. symbols, note, and error correction. Additionally, students perceived written feedback related to the grammar to be the most useful written feedback for them. At last, students perceived that effective written feedback should be understandable meaning that feedback should be simple, clear, and easy to understand. Moreover, effective feedback should also be detailed.
