I believe peer editing has limitations and needs alteration in several areas if it is to be a useful tool for improving writing. To learn more about the views of others, I decided to explore how beneficial they found peer editing based on their own experiences with the process. The aim of this study was to provide insight into the peer-editing process as it exists now and ultimately provide information that could improve the process and better students' writing.

Morgan Stubbe is a rising sophomore from Richmond, Virginia. With a Health Services Administration major and General Business minor, she hopes to combine her interests in medicine and wellness with business skills, and to work in the healthcare environment.
