This paper is concerned with the effect of direct, uncoded oral and written
feedback to the writing accuracy. Nine secondary school students, who were
chosen purposively from high, mid and low achiever, involved in this study.
Observation and document analysis were used to collect data in which errors of
grammatical - covering subject-verb agreement and clause construction -,
lexical and punctuation were analyzed. The result shows that the direct, uncoded
oral and written feedback gives significant effect only to the high achievers.
But, such feedback does not give much effect to the texts made by mid
achievers and low achievers. Overall, the feedback does not give significant
effect on the students’ writing accuracy. Considering limitations of the study,
some suggestions are also put forward.

KEYWORDS: feedback, writing accuracy
