Welcome to the Writing Center's self-paced grammar modules. These modules will help you develop your grammar skills. Start by reviewing the module preview below, then try taking the diagnostic quiz to learn which module might be most beneficial to you.
While APA is not a focus in any of these modules, they were created using APA 6 and the example paragraphs and citations you see will reflect APA 6.
The grammar diagnostic quiz contains 30-questions to test your knowledge of various English grammar rules related to (1) verbs, (2) nouns, pronouns, and articles, (3) modifiers, and (4) sentence structure basics, corresponding to each of the four grammar modules. Use the diagnostic quiz as a way to reflect on your own English grammar skills, as well as determine which grammar modules might benefit you the most.
After you complete the quiz, you will see your results, as well as an explanation of which grammar modules we recommend you complete.
