Grammarly Put to the Test

Image result for grammar

I love grammarist.com. When you’ve got a tough question about grammar, they’re likely to have the answer. Not long ago, they posted a piece about Grammarly, which gives new meaning to going back to (grammar) school. What is Grammarly, you ask?

Grammarly is an English language writing-enhancement platform developed by Grammarly, Inc., and launched in 2009. Grammarly’s proofreading and plagiarism-detection resources check more than 250 grammar rules.

You can download the software onto your computer or download the app. That’s all fine and good, but I was curious (without wanting to sacrifice the time myself), Does Grammarly actually work? Well, wouldn’t you know it: Grammarist did the legwork for us all!

You can click here to read “Grammarly Review 2017 – Does it do all it claims to do?” and go through the minutiae of the grammar samples (Yay! Sign me up, says the reader), or you can simply take their word for it in their final analysis.

And what was the final analysis for Grammarly from Grammarist?

“In the tests that were quantifiable, Grammarly was asked to check for forty-three mistakes, and it managed to find thirty-one of them. That’s 72 percent. But the numbers only tell part of the story.”
