What:

  • Grammarly is a software that is free to Rasmussen students and staff.
  • Grammarly checks for grammar, mechanics, spelling, word usage, and even plagiarism.
  • Grammarly is NOT a replacement for working with your instructor, a writing tutor, or the Writing Lab in our Online Tutoring Service (aka Brainfuse) .
  • There is no limit on the number of papers you can submit to Grammarly. Submit away!

Why:

  • It is a tool that will help you present your best work to your instructor.
  • When you turn in a paper that has already been reviewed by Grammarly, your instructor is then free to really focus on the content, what you have learned, without being distracted by writing errors.
  • Grammarly will help you build your confidence as you work towards becoming a better writer.

When:

24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Grammarly will provide almost instant feedback anytime because it is an automated (computerized) service.

Click on Writing Lab.

Once there, attach you paper using the Browse feature. Add any comments about what you'd like the writing expert to look for and/or attach your assignment instructions. Then click on Submit.

 

Once you have submitted your paper, wait 24-48 hours or until you get an email, and then go back into the Writing Lab. Look for the Message Center to find feedback for your paper! Writing Lab services continue through the weekend with no interruption.

 

 

Your feedback might come in a variety of forms. You might get comments within the paper itself, you might get virtual "sticky" notes, or you might get commentary at the beginning or end of your paper.
