    Hello Alaina, we are researching options to provide more meta data on submitted documents, word count being one of them. Are there any other data that would be helpful?

    As a grader, it might be helpful to have Readability Statistics like those available in Word.  This could provide some additional insight into the student's writing ability in terms of number of paragraphs or sentences as well as the possibility to look at the average Sentences per Paragraph and Words per Sentence and the % of Passive Voice used in the paper.  I could then use that to focus on specific areas of paragraph construction or sentence variance, etc.

    Also the Flesch Kincaid Reading Ease could be used as an indicator of student writing level, and since all of these statistics are available in Word, coaching the students on certain standards writing standards could integrate these two tools.
