Good first step for correct referencing.
Online referencing tools allow students to create a proper reference page. Son of Citation Machine helps students write a reference page for MLA, APA, Chicago, and Turabian styles. It also has an EssayCheck page to give feedback on Organization, Conventions, Sentence Structure, Development of Ideas, Word Choice, Style, and Grammar and spelling. The site isn't perfect, but it has tools students can use to make their writing better.Read full review
