Explanation for children

  A story writing diagnostic tool, designed for analysing the writing of 7 to 11 year olds. Diagnosing the strengths and weaknesses in children's story writing can indicate which structures have been mastered and are in use and which require further practice. The free site only provides the facility to check stories of 11 year olds. The subscription site has a more comprehensive facility using teacher assessment.   The computer wizard can check your text for you. The wizard will check if the story is detailed enough, has a good variety of words, different sentence styles and accurate punctuation.

Just click on me to check your text.
