Grammarly for final phase of editing?

What do folks think of using grammarly for 5th graders to use for a final edit on thier writing projects?

I have conferences with EVERY student a few times a week and have grammar editing sessions too, and some kids are still don't have polished papers.

Thoughts?

I do have my students use the free version of Paper Rater (paperrater.com).

It gives basic editing, spelling, and vocabulary use ratings.

Honestly Grammarly got me through Grad school.
Pros: student turn in better written papers


Cons
Students may just rely on Grammarly and never learn the rules
You couldn't grade on mechanics because it's not truly their work, just a computer
The students rely too heavily on Grammarly then can't use it on State Writing Assessments (Texas - 4th and 8th)

I havenít used Grammarly, so I canít really speak specifically to that.

However, just watching my students use the spelling/grammar check on Word, most donít know why they are changing things and do it only because thatís what the computer says. I would rather have mistakes show up in their writing to get a true sense of their skills and continue to practice the rules, so that their writing improves over time.

I use Grammarly personally (free version) partly because it tends to conform to the AP style manual. But I also argue with some of its suggestions. It might be a bit sophisticated for fifth graders but my favorite and best English teacher taught that it was important to know the rules of grammar so you knew when it made sense to break them. We also learned to speak using proper grammar... that meant having ďgrammarlyĒ installed in our brains.
