Free Plagiarism Checker by Grammarly
« on: April 16, 2019, 02:56:03 PM »
I have taught ESL writing courses to international undergraduate and graduate students for 4 semesters. Each semester the course curriculum requires me to teach the students why plagiarism is bad and how they can avoid it. During these lessons, I inform the students about Turnitin (SafeAssign), the software our department uses to detect plagiarism. After they learn about this software, I usually get at least one student ask me if I know of any software that they can use to check their writing for plagiarism. I usually tell them that I do not know of any free software. However, I recently learned that Grammarly has its own Plagiarism Checker (https://www.grammarly.com/plagiarism-checker[/color]). When scanning a text for plagiarism, the checker compares the input with ProQuest databases and over 16 billion web pages. Thus, this tool could be useful for students because it not only checks plagiarism but also grammar, punctuation, spelling, style, etc. [/size]
