      This study reports on the results of an quantitative research project carried out with a group of students of Year 9 of secondary education in a subsidized school in Chile. The general question addressed by the study is to find out to what extent peer correction is an effective tool to prevent errors and mistakes in learners' writing process. The study followed a pretest- posttest experimental-control group design. The study sample consisted of 16 who were randomly divided into two groups: 8 students were in the experimental group and 8 students for the control group. The experimental group used peer correction to mark errors and mistakes in writing, and the control group were corrected by the teacher, as usual. In both groups a correction code was used and the writing process was determined by a holistic rubric. Findings of the investigation indicate that peer correction is an effective tool to prevent errors and mistakes in learners' writing process, and positively affects students' quality of written compositions.
