How I Use It
Students are required to submit any typed written work to this website before it recieves a fianl grade. I use the peer review tool, the instructor comments tool, and the plagarism tool in order to evalaute papers.
My Take
This is a great tool for writing to ensure students are submittig orgiginal work as well as to help them better their writing with the comments tools. The only downside is that it requires the students to have an email address to register and a password. The juinor high kids often forget their passwords from year to year and do not always know how to access their emails to recover so students must create a new account for a fee. There should be an option for students registered to certain classes for instructors to view usernames and passwords.
