The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - 18 views

  •  
    Ever wonder why you can't figure out when and where to stick a comma? It's probably because commas, by far, have more rules and applications than any other punctuation mark.

I Won't Hire People Who Use Poor Grammar. Here's Why. - Kyle Wiens - Harvard Business R... - 143 views

  • Everyone who applies for a position at either of my companies, iFixit or Dozuki, takes a mandatory grammar test.
  • But grammar is relevant for all companies. Yes, language is constantly changing, but that doesn't make grammar unimportant. Good grammar is credibility, especially on the internet.

Reed-Kellogg Diagrammer - 47 views

    I tried a variety of sentences with this tool, and did not find it to be very helpful. It does not allow for a long sentence, and it repeatedly told me "Could not find utterance" when I created a compound-complex sentence.

    Grades 6-12, College - Post-Doc

    I tried this. I am not impressed. First, it only grades for papers grade 11 and over - even though the drop-down gives you options down to grade 6. I then took three papers from a grade 11 class. One was superior, one was mediocre, and one was written by an intensive ESL student - filled with errors that made comprehension almost impossible. The result? All three got C's. In addition, there were several grammar errors for the superior paper which are not grammar errors - and NONE for the ESL student. I would recommend we seek out another program.
