Check Grammar, Improve Word Choice and Detect Plagiarism
Grammarly makes you a better writer by finding and correcting up to 10× more mistakes than your word processor.
The website Grammarly is an online grammar checker that claims to be the most accurate in the world. It scans your text for over 250 uses of grammatical mistakes, as well as improve your word choice with intelligent vocabulary suggestions.
Where it might come in handy for teachers is the plagiarism search function. It will check any text with over 8 billion webpages to ensure the writing is unique. Luckily this doesn’t take very long to search!
Grammarly also has a contextual spellchecker that can differentiate between commonly used words. For example it can spot the error in ‘chocolate desert’ or ‘lose screw’ — avoiding any potential embarrassment.
To use Grammarly you’ll need a subscription plan, either monthly or yearly. It’s cheaper to buy the annual plan but the monthly option is handy to try out the service.
