The design of this study was a quasi-experimental study. The study was conducted in English Department of State University ofYogyakarta, Sleman. The population of the study was included all the second semester students of Writing Class of English Department of State University of Yogyakarta, Sleman, in the academic year of 2011/2012. Two classes were selected using the cluster random sampling technique from the population as the experimental and control groups, i.e. Class A and Class B. There were 20 students in Class A and 20 students in Class B. Class A waschosen as the experimental group while Class B was chosen as the control group. The experimental group was taught by using peer editing technique whereas the control group was taught by using teacher editing technique. The data were collected by administering a pre-test and a post-test. The data were analyzed using ANCOVA. The results of the data analysis are as follows. First, the increase of mean score of experimental group (1.95) is higher than that of the control group (0.15). Second, the standard deviation of post-test of experimental group (1.67) is more homogeneous than the control group (1.83). Third, the frequency of score of experimental group increases (5%), while there is no increase in the control group score frequency. Fourth, there is a significant difference in the writing skill between both groups indicated by ANCOVA results, in which the significance level is 0.000 which is less than 0.05 (F= 7.643, p > 0.05). Therefore, the hypothesis of the research “There is a significant difference in the writing skill between the second semester students of Writing Class of English Department of Yogyakarta State University, Sleman, in the academic year of 2011/2012 taught by using peer editing technique and those taught by using the teacher editing technique” is accepted.
