Your score in Grammarly is usually equivalent to the number of changes Grammarly suggests you make in a draft. As you continue working on a draft and implementing Grammarly’s suggestions, your score should improve.

Because it is automated, Grammarly does have limitations. An automated program such as Grammarly should be used as a supplement rather than a substitute for a close revision and proofreading.Thus, a Grammarly score should be used only as a general guide, not as a final consultation. There is no particular score that the Writing Center or Walden deems appropriate. Instead, aim to edit your draft as completely as possible.
