ETS CriterionWriting, GrammarCriterion is a system for immediate, online writing feedback. When my formal school used the system, it had a blind spot where parallel structure was concerned, but generally it handled other grammatical issues extremely well, not only noting problem areas in an essay but giving students immediate access to the relevant section in an online grammar book. It can't do much for the content of the writing, but it can help students improve their grasp of the mechanics of writing.employeeshttp://www.ets.org/criterion

Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL)Writing, FormattingThis site has a great collection of resources, including the most up-to-date coverage of both MLA and APA format, often a weak spot for students. All of the discussions are well illustrated with clear and relevant examples.
