For schools interested in using NoRedInk Premium, please click here.

The site is currently free for everyone – teachers, students, parents, tutors, school administrators, and all who want to improve their grammar!

Who created this?

NoRedInk was created by Jeff Scheur, an English teacher at Whitney Young Magnet High School. After grading over 15,000 papers, he realized that to truly improve their grammar skills, students needed 1) more practice than they were getting; 2) immediate, differentiated feedback; and 3) a fun, interactive way to practice and get better. Teachers can’t possibly be expected to catch and help students fix every one of their misconceptions, so this was built as a teacher tool to help kids learn in a fun way.

Does NoRedInk work on iPad?

Yes! It also works with the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Will my students and I lose our data if I upgrade to NoRedInk Premium?

Converting free accounts on to Premium ones is a snap, and teachers and students will not lose any data when their schools go Premium. Users will just have many more categories to choose from and broader functionality.

That being said, Edmodo accounts cannot upgrade to NoRedInk Premium, so Edmodo users will need to switch over to accounts when they upgrade.

Do you have a “parent informational letter” that I can send home to parents to educate them about the site?

Yes we do! You can find that and other helpful resources here!

Do you have onboarding instructions that I can share with other teachers in my school/district?

Yes we do! You can find that and other helpful resources here!
