Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Aug 12, 2009

Teachers can test their reading and writing students' skills with Edit Prep. The program creates worksheets that students can proofread for correct punctuation and grammar usage, or read for contextual clues to test their reading comprehension skills.

We tried each of Edit Prep's three sections: Proofreading, Comprehension, and CLOZE Worksheet, which deals with finding contextual clues in passages of text. The program has a selection of sample text from well-known works of literature from which you can generate worksheets, or users can import passages from sources outside the program. We think teachers will enjoy this option, because they can use passages from books or other types of literature that they are currently teaching in their classrooms. Edit Prep comes with some clip art and some limited formatting options, but users may prefer formatting them in word-processing programs with which they are familiar for greater control. Overall, we found Edit Prep easy to use, but Help files are available within each section of the program should you need them.

The program includes a 14-day trial period. If you purchase the full version of the program, you can copy the worksheets into the word processing program of your choice with one click. Edit Prep's only drawback is that it does not install or uninstall cleanly. When installing the program, Desktop and Quick Launch icons and bundled applications were added without asking. Still, we recommend this program for teachers, as well as students wanting to improve their grammar skills.
