Abstract
Yang, Hyejin. 2018. Efficiency of online grammar checker in English writing performance and students’ perceptions. Korean Journal of English Language and Linguistics, 18-3, 328-348. This study investigated efficiency of feedback from an online grammar checker, SpellCheckPlus, by examining (1) efficiency of feedback from the grammar checker in improvement of grammar accuracy in L2 students’ writing and (2) students’ perceptions towards the grammar checker as a language learning tool. A mixed-methods approach was employed to collect data by using multiple instruments, such as linguistic analysis of three major assignments and students’ responses to the pre- and post-treatment questionnaires. The findings determined grammatical error rates significantly decreased between the first and second drafts for Assignments 2 and 3. No significant differences in error rates were noted between the first and second drafts for Assignment 1. Students’ perceptions towards feedback from the grammar checker found incorrect writing feedback and students’ lack of proficiency influenced error correction. Questionnaire responses determined students displayed relatively positive attitudes toward the grammar checker, while incorrect feedback hindered the level of the trustworthiness toward this feedback. This study implied the grammar checker could serve as a useful pedagogical tool to help grammar uses for low-proficient L2 learners’ writing.
