This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of peer feedback in enhancing the linguistic competencies of third-grade students at a private elementary school in Northern Mindanao, Philippines. Amid the challenges of online learning due to the pandemic, traditional individual assessments fell short of fostering a deeper understanding of writing errors. This research investigates whether peer feedback can serve as a powerful pedagogical tool for improving students' grammar, punctuation, and capitalization in written paragraphs during the post-pandemic period. A quasi-experimental design was implemented in one class, with pre- and post-intervention assessments using holistic scoring to gauge writing skills. The intervention involved structured peer feedback sessions, in which students collaboratively critiqued and discussed paragraphs using specific language criteria. A post-intervention assessment mirrored the initial one, with paired sample t-tests conducted for statistical analysis. The findings indicated significant improvement, with 80% of students scoring between 11 and 15 out of a perfect score of 15 after the intervention, indicating enhanced proficiency in writing competency. This progress suggests that peer feedback is crucial in linguistic development, signifying improved proficiency in the writing competencies targeted. The shift toward peer feedback has not only improved scores but has also promoted student awareness of their linguistic choices, suggesting a sustainable model for language acquisition that extends beyond traditional assessment. Anchored in the context of a pandemic-impacted learning environment, this study contributes innovative insights into peer-based assessment methodologies, underscoring their potential to enhance elementary language education even in distance learning settings.
