Peer Feedback and Coaching for 2022 Proposals

Undergraduate researchers who are writing proposals for the 2022 CCCC Undergraduate Researcher Poster Session may submit proposal drafts for peer feedback and coaching via Eli Review. This opportunity will be available November 1-15, 2021. (See timeline details below.) Proposal authors who submit a draft for feedback must be willing to provide peer feedback on at least one other draft.

How can I participate in the feedback process?

To participate in the peer feedback and coaching opportunity:

  1. Follow the directions in this PDF document to create your Eli Review account. Thanks to Eli Review, your account is free for CCCC Undergraduate Researcher Poster Session tasks.
  2. Submit your proposal draft by composing or copying/pasting in the Proposal Draft writing task in Eli Review by 11:45 PM on November 14, 2021. (See more details below.)
  3. After you’ve submitted a draft, you’ll be assigned another undergraduate researcher’s draft to review. We’ll ask you to describe what you see the writer accomplishing in the draft, to evaluate how the draft meets the proposal guidelines, and to suggest specific strategies for strengthening the proposal. Complete your assigned peer review by 11:45 PM on November 15, 2021.

Proposal authors who submit earlier during the process will be paired with other authors who have submitted their drafts early; in other words, you do not need to wait until November 14th to submit your draft. The earlier you submit, the earlier you’ll receive feedback.

What should I submit on Eli Review?

To receive feedback on your draft, submit a poster presentation title and a 400-word proposal that:

  • Explains your research project: What is your research question and how are you investigating it (e.g., what research methods are you using)? Why is your research topic significant to you and to the field of writing studies?
  • Indicates the anticipated status of the project by March 2022. Projects may just be beginning, or still in-progress, when you submit this proposal, but we’d like to know about your anticipated timeline for your project if your research is still in-progress.
  • Discusses your interest in sharing your research with CCCC attendees. 
  • Indicates if you have (or plan to apply for) IRB-approval for your research (if your research involves human participants and your school has an institutional review board or ethics review process for research).

Undergraduate researchers may submit proposal drafts for peer feedback and coaching via Eli Review. Proposal authors who submit a draft for feedback (deadline: November 14) must be willing to provide peer feedback on at least one other draft on November 15, 2021:

  • Submit your draft between November 1-14.
  • Complete at least one peer review on November 15.

Proposal authors who submit earlier during the process will be paired with other authors who have submitted their drafts early; in other words, you do not need to wait until November 14th to submit your draft. The earlier you submit, the earlier you’ll receive feedback.

Revised proposals are due via the online submission website (NOT via Eli Review) by November 30, 2021.
