The provision of formative feedback has been shown to support self-regulated learning for improving students’ writing. Formative peer feedback is a promising approach, but requires scaffolding to be effective for all students. Automated tools making use of writing analytics techniques are another useful means to provide formative feedback on students’ writing. However, they should be applied through effective learning designs in pedagogic contexts for better uptake and sense-making by students. Such learning analytics applications open up the possibilities to combine different types of feedback for effective design of interventions in authentic contexts. A framework combining peer feedback and automated feedback is proposed to design effective interventions for improving student writing. Automated feedback is augmented by peer feedback for better contextual feedback and sense making, and peer feedback is enhanced by automated feedback as scaffolding, thus complementing each other.
