Turnitin has a NEW Feature: the ETS® e-rater®

iParadigms, the company that makes Turnitin, has announced that ETS® e-rater® grammar tool is now available within GradeMark. According to company literature, “the e-rater grammar tool delivers automated feedback on grammar, style, mechanics, usage and spelling, saving instructors time while providing them with more effective feedback on the student writing process.”

COMPREHENSIVE FEEDBACK
Integrated with GradeMark, e-rater marks can be layered with other writing tools: Originality Check for plagiarism prevention and PeerMark for online peer reviewing.

INSTANT MARKS
The e-rater technology automatically flags grammar, style, usage, mechanics and spelling errors so instructors can spend less time correcting and more time teaching.

GRAMMAR HANDBOOKS
Students can view their e-rater marks that link to grammar handbooks that are grade-appropriate. For English language learners, handbooks are available in ten languages.
