That was my question. I've showed them that the research shows that
grammar checking isn't reliable and that it has a negative effect on
their teaching, but to no avail.
They've been spoiled since the Mac version of Office has a decent
grammar checker (35% accuracy) versus the Windows version of Office (0%,
although Word 97 did do better at 24%):
BTW, here are my links about the subject:
