How I Use It
I use this to check for plagiarism in student work. I also use the discussion board for weekly assignments.
My Take
I like the originality checker and the grammar tool. The students can easily see how much of their paper is considered plagiarized. This is a great opportunity to reinforce authentic research methods and properly citing text. The grammar tool hit the mark 90% of the time which is a great time-saver. Having a due date on all assignments eliminates the "...but I turned it into you..." Either it's turned in by the deadline or it's not. The discussion boards were tested by my AP students last year and worked for the most part. I liked the due dates and that usually motivated students to complete their discussions quickly rather than wait until the last minute.
