Paper Rater (otherwise known as PaperRater) is a service that will help students improve their level of grammar, spelling, vocabulary and writing style. If that wasn’t enough, it can also be used for plagiarism check.
So what makes this software better than some other content tools?
Check out this review to learn more; it will be worth your time!
What does Paper Rater do?
This text tool has 3 main features:
- Grammar checker
- Writing suggestions
- Plagiarism checking
It can be used to write and grade essay papers, to help with proofreading, to make a better word and sentence choice. All in all, it can be used for analysis and improvement of any written work.
As you search through paperrater.com website, you will notice that this software doesn’t require any download, it allows teachers to leave a feedback and it also provides quick results. However, the thing that was most interesting to me was how great this free version is.
Here’s a great video that will show you the tool in action:
Before I go into proofreader and plagiarism checker, let’s talk about free version.
One of the best free services on the web
Most grammar software that you can find online is paid.
In terms of that, not only does Paper Rater.com have a free version but it is also quite easy to use and provides great results. This version gives you almost the same options as you would have with a paid one.
So what’s the main difference between the two?
Free version of PaperRater
- Can do 5 pages per submission
- Has ads
- Doesn’t show matching text after plagiarism check
- No file upload is allowed
- Doesn’t allow certain modules
- Has slower processing
Paid version of PaperRater
- Can do 20 pages per submission
- Doesn’t have ads
- Shows matching text after plagiarism check
- Allows file upload
- Has additional modules
- Has faster processing
When it comes to pricing, paid version costs approximately $7 per month or $47 per year.
That doesn’t make it too expensive even if you decide to subscribe to it. Still, you can go for a free version and get almost the same results.
According to what I’ve seen so far PaperRater is probably the best free grammar tool.
How does analysis go?
Once you copy paste your text or upload it, program will generate an automated report that can be sent to your email or opened instantly within a browser.
It will create a list of all the errors and suggestion starting with:
Shows you percentage of uniqueness by comparing it to various Internet sources. Paid version allows you to click on sources where plagiarism was found.
Shows all the spelling mistakes within your text.
It underlines all the grammar errors that you’ve made. It also provides suggestions that will help you fix them.
Shows you how good your word choices are and whether phrasing you used is natural or not.
Talks about usage of transitional words (how well you connect sentences and paragraphs), sentences length (how long your sentences are), readability indices, sentence beginning (how much of a variety you have when beginning sentences) and passive voice (percentage of passive voice and where it was used).
Shows versatility of your text, how many different phrases you’re using.
Allows teacher to grade a paper.
Tool provides some additional resources and allows you to send this report to an email address.
As you can see there are a lot of things that you can do with Paper Rater.com.
It is one of those tools that provides everything possible without asking anything in return. My suggestion is to try it out, see how it fits and decide whether or not you wish to use it in future. Given that it’s currently free, this can be a great alternative to some hyped tools that provide exactly the same options.
