Introduction

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. 

Features

  • State-of-the-art error correction via natural language processing and machine learning techniques
  • Integrates across platforms, applications, and devices
  • Particularly effective at correcting errors of ESL writers
  • The report function allows students to demonstrate that they’ve checked their work

Getting Started

To get the most out of Grammarly, make sure it’s installed in all the places you do your writing. Visit the apps page at https://app.grammarly.com/apps.
