Welcome to WritePoint, the automated review system that recognizes errors most commonly made by university students in academic essays. The system embeds comments into your paper and suggests possible changes in grammar and style. Please evaluate each comment carefully to ensure that the suggested change is appropriate for your paper, but remember that your instructor's preferences for style and format prevail. You will also need to review your own citations and references since WritePoint capability in this area is limited. Thank you for using WritePoint. I hope to gain a better understanding of academic writing with my time in Com 155. It has been many years since I have been in a situation where I have needed to do any academic writing. Many of the things I learned in high school have been forgotten. Some of the things that go with academic writing are Audience, tone, and purpose. My audience for the writing I do for my assignments in this course will be my instructor. The tone I will want to use in my writing will be formal because this is a learning environment. I feel that by using a formal tone I am better preparing myself for future professional interactions. By setting down a “game plan” now of how I’m going to approach this course I feel it will better prepared me to learn all that I can. I feel that knowing what I hope to learn ahead of time will help me to accomplish it. I feel that Com 155 will greatly help me to understand the skills and disciplines of academic writing.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
