Feedback was bad. Turnitin was useless; most of the overlap was on Works Cited pages and quotes -- do kidding that would be overlap. However turn around time was great.

This course really helped me with my writing skills. The editors really gave me good ideas on how to improve each paper. Each assignment was graded within 24 hours, which helped me complete this course in under 4 weeks.

I enjoyed the swiftness of the course. It was easy to get into and the assignments were creative. I would have liked to have a wide variety of topics to write about. I felt confined to write about what others wanted be to write about and that disrupts my creative flow.

This course was challenging, yet enjoyable. I loved having a professor just an email or call away if I had any questions or concerns. I admit that I am not a huge academic writing fan, but I managed to get through the criteria and complete English I with a passing grade. I am very thankful to have finally have my college credits in this course! Thank you Straighterline!

English is a very hard subject for me but I realized with Straighterline, I learned more about writing taking this course than I ever did in high shcool. I really enjoyed having my essays revised for me with an explanation rather in high school, I would simply receive a letter grade. I have never enjoyed writing until this course, and I deffinatly never use to enjoy a research paper. Being able to write my research paper on a subject I wanted to learn more about was the best part of this class.
