You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Why I got different results from different computers?

    Dear Developers, thank you for your effort, this is the only program I've found that is capable for technical writing.

    But here I'm testing a paper from Cancer Cell, and I did select the education level as Doctorate and type as Thesis. The problem is, when I tested it on the computer of my company, it worked very well and gave a proper assessment, while testing the same text on my own laptop, many technical terms were reported as misspelling, and some grammar errors not exactly “errors”. So now I'm confused whether the algorithm has anything to do with the…

    • Biography Name Detection

      In biography's have a name detection, so when first/last names are an object/idea (ex. Lily, Battle, Green) the rater does not believe that something should be fixed grammatically if the name was being used as a name

      • Length and Assignment Criteria

        Allow teachers to assign length criteria, for instance. Perhaps, teachers could assign formatting criteria which the student submission must meet.

          • An online plugin or extension like grammarly

            I would love to see pape rater in the form of app or software just like Grammarly. I would have used Grammarly but of course I get so many premium features of Grammarly for free with paper rater. P.S. The plugin does not have to be offline. We sure would love plugin even if it is online.

                • Reference checker

                  Have an option that checks the reference page for MLA or APA accuracy. Many times this section of the paper is the most critically graded and this should be an option included in the paper rater.

                  • create an LTI for learning management tools such as Blackboard, Google Classroom, Canvas, etc...

                    This would be a great and must have if yo are to take your product to the next level in Education. Many K-12 and colleges are moving to online classrooms and Blackboard, Google Classroom, and Canvas are some of the biggest out there. If a teacher could use PaperRater inside the learning module without leaving the course, it would have a huge following. Students can have papers checked with PaperRater before submitting the final product.

                      The processing is not working correctly. Seems to hold recent positives in memory and returns these old suggestions in a new evaluation? I fix problems, and cleared my cache and cookies. Tried again and the editor still is identifying issues that were corrected, but they do not exist in my text.

                        We should have a more powerful grammer check like grammarly. Exept could try making it a little better.

                          • Quotation Detector

                            There should be an option to remove quotations from being grading as sometimes authors write in intentionally bad grammar for the sake of natural dialogue. The grade of the essay should not go down for using grammatically incorrect source material.

                              It would be nice to have the ability to exclude certain sites in the plagiarism checker. Some of our content is published on another site, so our documents always come up as plagiarized. We’d love for that site to be excluded and for the content to be checked against other sites.

                              • Highlight in a different color(s) long sentences or have a way to toggle through long sentences.

                                From what I have read, there is a relationship between the length of a sentence and the probability that it will be grammatically incorrect (for those who struggle with writing). Perhaps sentences between 20 and 30 words could be color coded purple and anything over 30 words would be set to red.

                                        • Include "Add to Dictionary"

                                          Would it be possible to include "Add to Dictionary" so same words wouldn't be flagged chapter after chapter.
