As high school students grow, the value placed on the quality of their writing increases exponentially if they pursue higher education. However, traditional forms of the writing process have become standardized or formulated in many high schools. This has resulted in a lowering of student interest and quality because of the One-Size-Fits-All approach. Some researchers and theorists are investigating the benefits of allowing student choice and utilizing new mediums for feedback. This case study, taking place in a rural high school, looks into the viability of student audio recordings as a suitable replacement for traditional face-to-face conferences in regards to student writing. By giving students agency to choose what they wanted to improve on, the data showed that students place importance on a wide range of aspects in writing.
