In this course you will take a diagnostic test to determine basic strengths and weaknesses in your knowledge of grammar and usage. You will complete 10-20 exercises online each week which are electronically scored to give you immediate feedback. Also, you will complete several challenging assessments. Topics covered include parts of speech, clauses, phrases, verb tenses, punctuation, and mechanics. The instructor will provide structured lessons and feedback, but you will have the option to spend more time on topics you need to review and less on those already mastered.

Copyediting I, II, III and Grammar Lab are offered every quarter. Please check the Enrollment Available Online date on the Extension Calendar to find out the next date that classes will publish to the web.
