DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-5103-4.ch008


This chapter presents the in-depth analysis of case studies in which each linguistic item used in pre-test and post-tests are noted. Although the participants in case studies did not show improved accuracy after receiving written CF, the errors which had been provided with written CF did not occur again in the post-tests. And it can be seen that the errors that appeared in post-tests bore no relation to the written CF. Proficiency level was not found have an impact on the effect of written CF, but it was found that participants who had lower proficiency level required more written CF assistance.
