This paper describes a Web-based reciprocal peer review system called scaffolded writing and rewriting in the discipline (SWoRD), addressing its approaches to writing and rewriting as a sound function of peer reviews. It also provides an empirical evaluation showing that reciprocal peer reviews through SWoRD are very effective in improving writing quality in content classes.
