Ever wondered whether online grammar checkers really work? There’s been limited research on this area, so a recent post on the learning development in higher education network (LDHEN@JISCMAIL.AC.UK) is welcome news.
There’s a link to this article https://lnkd.in/gauCJbd which suggests that students found the Grammarly site useful and helped to improve their assignments, as well as increasing their confidence; though as with everything academic, there has to be a healthy dose of critical evaluation. Nothing’s foolproof after all.
As a matter of note, the site is tested against the framework of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) which grades ease of use, and the research surveyed the Australian College of
Applied Psychology (ACAP) and Navitas College of Public Safety (Melbourne, Australia).
