GOALS:

Citelighter makes students better writers by breaking down arguments into manageable steps and helps teachers make CCSS-aligned assignments, provide real-time feedback on student writing and streamline the grading process. Citelighter was designed to help students better organize and express their thoughts while keeping teachers and school leaders up-to-date on their students’ progress.

Students can incorporate online sources relevant to a particular section of their argument directly into their paper and work to paraphrase and cite it. Teachers can use the assessment rubrics to expedite standards-based grading and receive analytics on student performance.
