This pilot study explores the use of a web-based text-matching tool, Grammarly (a premium version), as an instructional tool to teach and facilitate writing from sources in an L2 university classroom. Participants (N=38) at a Japanese university used this tool to learn and practice paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing skills. The results show that Grammarly was not successful in detecting cases of poor citation practices, but students did make some overall improvements in writing.
