Every week, I have at least one teacher ask me about free anti-plagiarism websites. Well, from all the ones I’ve checked out, the best is grammarly.com. Why? It has a pretty sophisticated plagiarism checker, though nowhere near the advanced algorithim that turnitin employs. But, for those schools who are cash strapped. It provides a nice alternative. Of course, you don’t get all the bells and whistles, but grammarly does provide some other resources. My favorite is the grammar help it offers to students. I ask my writing students to use grammarly to help them eliminate many of their common grammar mistakes.
It’s not the best thing out there, but among the free choices, grammarly is hard to beat.
