Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis examines the nature of evidence in scholarship on peer review in composition studies. I argue that the nature of evidence present in scholarship on peer review over the past three decades is typically anecdotal, theoretical, and based on limited case studies. I argue that peer review research in the field of composition studies will benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration and replicable, aggregated, and data-supported (RAD) methodologies, as these types of collaborative approaches have already produced promising results and prepare the field for the future. One example of a product of these collaborative approaches, Eli Review, a web-based, peer review application, is already being used in first-year composition courses across the United States. This thesis explores Eli's use at one of these universities, Oregon State University, and suggests that Eli's aggregated data can be used by instructors and administrators for course and program assessment. As some composition studies scholars are skeptical of RAD methods, I call for collaboration with scholars engaged with Writing Across the Curriculum as a promising entry point for this type of research.
