Description

Effective legal writers must be able to write clearly, concisely, and compellingly while possessing a clear understanding of proper Bluebook citation for the sources that undergird their writing. Interactive Grammar and Usage Assessment and Interactive Legal Citation Assessment, both available individually, are now bundled together, providing your students with a self-assessment tool that both tests and teaches these crucial legal skills for $40.

Interactive Grammar and Usage Assessment
Mary B. Trevor, a legal writing professor with two decades of experience, has crafted a collection of over two hundred multiple-choice questions covering grammar, punctuation, usage, and style. Trevor designed the questions to reflect—and to correct—the most common errors she saw during a career spent providing feedback on thousands of law students’ memos, briefs, letters, and email messages. Detailed reporting is available by subtopic.

Interactive Legal Citation Assessment
Recently Revised and Keyed to the New 21st Edition of The Bluebook, Published in July 2020. Building on the success of her Interactive Grammar and Usage Assessment, Mary Trevor has created a new collection of more than two hundred multiple-choice questions that focus on proper Bluebook citation. Trevor designed the questions to reflect—and to correct—the most common errors she saw during a career spent providing feedback to law students working to develop the specific, challenging, and important skills associated with legal citation. Detailed reporting is available by subtopic.

Both are designed to be a self-assessment tool. Students can work at their own pace in our cleanly designed digital format. The questions are broken into specific categories, so users can focus on particular topics where improvement might be needed. Right answers include an explanation of why an answer is correct. More importantly, the detailed explanations accompanying wrong answers provide a real opportunity for learning.

The sophisticated, yet simple, user-interface provides students with many useful options:
  • Tracking progress through questions covering a specific subtopic
  • Viewing scores after completing a quiz
  • Marking specific questions for further review
  • Retaking a quiz any number of times
