Mohammad Aliakbari, Hossein Raeesi

Abstract


This paper was intended to examine teacher's corrective feedback and student's preferences in an advanced writing course. The study was conducted using a questionnaire as the instrument and 15 MA TEFL students from Ilam state university in Iran as the participants. The students were asked to prioritize among a list of ten aspects of error correction and feedback. The findings made it clear that a high majority of the students chose to be corrected, commented, and guided on the issue of organization as their first priority. The results further specified that instructors should realize that advanced students do not like to be treated in the same way as the elementary and intermediate pupils do. Otherwise, it may result in students' discontent and boredom in educational setting.
