Spot Check assignments aren’t like normal Signal Check assignments in Revision Assistant.
Instead of providing highlighting and helpful comments, it helps teachers understand how well you can write without Revision Assistant’s help.
Spot Check assignments are found on the homepage. They will be purple instead of blue.
