This thesis is a comparison of two feedback types, error correction and reformulation used by second language writers at two proficiency levels, Basic and Intermediate, to see what is noticed and which type prompts more noticing. Eight University students composed a draft, compared this with either feedback, and then revised their draft. Using verbal protocol during the comparison stage language related episodes were transcribed and categorized as (1) noticing, (2) noticing with explanation or (3) with editing, and (4) noticing with explanation and editing. Findings show that error correction prompts more noticing and accuracy in the revision stage at both proficiency levels. EC prompts more local noticing while reformulation prompts more global noticing, specifically at the Intermediate level
