This easy to use app is designed to help students develop the self editing skills that they will need from primary school right through to university. COPS stands for Capitals, Organisation, Punctuation and Spelling. Research has shown that students who develop these self correction and editing skills at a young age are more likely to be stronger writers later in life.
This checklist provides a systematic approach for students to check their own writing. Students 'tick off' each section of the checklist after they have reviewed their piece of writing and made any changes that are necessary. This app is easy to use but provides a powerful learning tool for students who are new to editing.
