Grammarly is a digital writing tool that provides grammar and spell checking, plagiarism detection services, and suggestions about writing clarity, concision, vocabulary, style, and tone.
Grammarly helps students find and correct low-level errors in their written work and avoid inadvertent plagiarism. Requiring students to check their work in Grammarly before turning it in allows instructors to focus more on higher-level issues such as critical thinking, creativity, and demonstration of learning.
Although Grammarly does not currently integrate with Canvas, it does have a report feature that can support course integration.
