Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


In this paper, an online platform for learning GRE writing and providing peer feedback is designed. The platform consists of 4 modules: the first module helps the users to get familiar with the rhetorical moves and linguistic features found in the model essays; the second module trains the users to recognise the problems with content and form and prepare the users for peer review; the third module simulates the test environment for the users to practice writing with time constraints; the final module allows the users to review other users’ writing from module 3.
