The present study aims to bring out the benefits of using a peer-evaluation activity in a writing class. The study qualitatively evaluates the peer-evaluation comments by 18 students of an English writing class. The content, structure, and grammar of an essay (written individually) were peer-evaluated. After a few weeks there was another round of an essay-writing test. The study qualitatively analyses the written comments during the peer-evaluation activity and looks into the essays written after the peer-evaluation activity. The results show that the students understood the importance of clarity of meaning and structure of an essay.
