Abstract: This study investigated students’ attitudes towards peer feedback in process writing classes in addition to assessing the effectiveness of this teaching technique. The sample of the study consisted of 105 male and female students from five sections of an undergraduate writing course offered by the English Department at Hebron University in the academic year 2010/2011. A pre-test, post-test as well as a pre-questionnaire and post-questionnaire consisting of twenty statements follow a five-point Likert scale. The results indicated that students viewed peer feedback as a worthwhile experience; it offered an opportunity for social interaction. It also improved students’ writing skills. Furthermore, the technique enhanced students’ critical thinking, confidence, creativity, and motivation. In addition, it helped in improving their assignments. The paper offers some recommendations.
