This study examines two aspects of the effectiveness of multiple revisions on grammatical error reduction for Japanese learners of English as a foreign language: error reduction over several drafts on a certain topic and error reduction in the first drafts on subsequent topics. Students in this study were divided into three. After receiving teacher feedback, these three were told (1) not to revise, (2) to revise once, or (3) to revise twice, respectively. They wrote on four topics altogether. The results show no correlation between the number of revisions and the change in error frequency from the first topic to the fourth. However, the students who revised twice on each topic learned to notice by themselves grammatical errors that had not been indicated in teacher feedback. This suggests that multiple revisions can be effective in developing learners’ ability to self-correct errors, although this skill does not seem to automatically transfer to the next writing assignments.
