bullet1 Grammar for Academic Writing

These materials were developed initially for the pre-sessional course at the University of Exeter in 2003. The purpose of the site is to help students improve language areas that have been identified by their teachers in marking their essays. 

This marking procedure uses a set of 24 types of errors which were originally developed by Carolyn Walker for marking essay papers in the traditional way. Markin Software was adapted  by Norbert Berger for marking essays electronically. Patrick Jehu, Sue Nuttall and Norbert Berger modified the previous set of categories into its present form. Norbert Berger created the new button set and programmed links and links pages to allow students instant access to relevant background information on specific errors as well as relevant online exercises both on this site and on the internet.
