        It would be nice if it has a word replacement service to help replace over used word in an essay. Some-what of a thesaurus.

        • Formatting Lost in Internet Explorer

          Paper Rater does a great job catching mistakes and finding plagiarism, but it doesn't keep the formatting of a paper, which is very important for anybody, but especially for students writing term papers. They copy and it takes out all the paragraphs and spaces and blockquotes and makes the text into one huge block of text. It needs to retain the formatting.

                  • Show the total grade (Ex. 88) broken down into specific sections.

                    If your grade was say 88%, it would give you a breakdown showing for Example.

                    Spelling And Grammer 92% A
                    Word chioce and Vocab. 86% B
                    Style and Titile Checker 86% B
                    --------------------------------------
                    Overall Grade 88% B

                    This would allow students who are dissatisfied with thier grade to see what exactly is bringing up/down the average. Allowing them to Improve specific areas (Word chioce and Vocab. or Style and Titile Checker) to hopefully bring their average from a B to an A (from 88 to least a 90%).

                    • Make a tool to highlight certain kinds of words, ex: "being" verbs

                      This would highlight certain kinds of words like "be" verbs or contractions so that if a certain teacher doesn't like them then you can edit them out.

                        • Detect inappropriate changes of tense.

                          One of the most common problems I have when I write is unconsciously changing tense. Peter does not like this and would like Paper-rater to correct him! (O.K. extreme example, but you get my point).

                            • Check for sentence fluidity, if a sentence makes sense, if it's a run-on, if it's passive, parallelism, agreements, tenses, etc!

                              If you could be like a editor/grader that you have to pay for (but free of course!) that would be AWESOME!!!!!!!

                                  • Detect passive voice

                                    Sometimes it's really difficult to realize that you're writing in the passive voice and I know it would very beneficial to me if there was a software (rather than my professor) letting me know!

                                    • Expand spell check dictionary to include medical terms e.g. retroperitoneal, urologist, radiologist

                                      The spell check function would benefit from the added functional recognition of basic medical and related technical terminologies.

                                        • More vocabulary words that are not just nouns

                                          i have been receiving B's on this website, because most of my "strong"
                                          words are verbs. All the vocabulary that is counted are nouns. It would be very helpful to broaden the vocabulary list.
