An amazing resource for the classroom! The students enjoy seeing questions that relate to their interests, and I have an effective, streamlined method of tracking progress.
I love this product… The ability for students to go back and fix their mistakes and have access to a tutorial is ideal.
I can not begin to explain how impressed I am. The site is easy to navigate. The students’ interests are piqued! The skills are specific. The results are easy to evaluate and help me to prepare for my lessons.
A POWERFUL, simple, brilliant way to quiz students on specific grammar skills. My students were incredibly receptive. NoRedInk gave them hints, and I saw significant growth!
I love it! No grading! It gives them immediate feedback and it’s easy to access through Edmodo. One of the best apps for ELA teachers out there.
Finding your site was a bit of serendipity. NoRedInk provides an area of practice that is underserved in digital curriculum. Our teachers are excited to have a program to challenge their students’ skills in grammar.
NoRedInk gives me specific data about what I need to focus on in class. I get to spend less time correcting grammar and more time focusing on content!
Delcambre High English teachers are using NoRedInk in their ACT prep classes. The students are loving it! We've noticed an increase in their quiz scores.
I LOVE this site! Easy and fun. A great change from traditional “drill the skill” grammar. I love that it is actually a challenge for students to change the assignments to blue!
My AP Lang students test drove this platform last year. Love it! As a teacher, I enjoyed being able to see exactly what my students were working on. The students especially liked personalizing the experience through their choices.
I'm Jeff Scheur, and I created NoRedInk while teaching high school English in Chicago. Like so many educators, I graded well over 15,000 papers, wondering how I could develop more efficient systems to help my students quickly address their misconceptions. It's no secret that learners need immediate feedback, curriculum that stems from their interests, and lots of practice in order to show rapid growth, and yet teachers can only do so much with large classes and limited time.
I made NoRedInk to help my students improve their skills with engaging material — and to allow me to track their progress over time. It also freed me up to focus on big-picture concepts in student writing that sorely needed my attention. It's been one year since I made NoRedInk publicly available, and a small group of educators and engineers work tirelessly to improve it. The site is free for all teachers and students to use. I hope it's helpful!
Students generally find grammar boring because the content doesn’t relate to them. That’s why we generate questions from each student’s favorite celebrities, hobbies, TV shows, and friends. Imagine taking a quiz where your best friend’s name keeps popping up! It’s no surprise that students are engaged quickly.
Multiple-choice tests aren’t particularly fun or authentic. We’d prefer to have students drag in commas, click words to capitalize them, throw out unwanted punctuation, and edit the text directly. Our goal is to make learning as authentic as possible so that students really learn the material.
We believe that teachers should have the resources to help each student at the appropriate level – and that learners should be able to work at their own pace. Our site allows students to practice independently so that teachers can differentiate instruction based on results.
One benefit of technology is the ability to adjust questions based on what students get right or wrong, drilling down to their underlying misconceptions. When learners get stuck, we show them tutorials that help them correct their mistakes and keep going.
All educators know that it takes a long time for students to fully grasp new skills. Our site allows learners unlimited practice so teachers don’t have to be constantly swamped with grading.
