The UCI Highlighter is a tool to help students improve their academic writing. The highlighter prompts writers to use different colors to highlight summary, evidence, or commentary in their essay. These highlights provide an easily accessible visual representation of the rhetorical structure of the essay. The Highlighter also provides a statistical summary of these components. This information can help writers make decisions about how to revise an analytic essay to make it stronger.
This is primarily a tool developed for data-collection by UCI researchers. Highlighting history is automatically saved.
