Citelighter is a Common Core-aligned research and writing platform that empowers students to think critically, communicate clearly, and write with confidence to master 21st Century Skills. In addition to providing students with tools to help them perform research and write papers, we want to help teachers by providing information on their students’ writing habits by utilizing certain data points that we maintain within Citelighter. We will not sell or provide any private information to third parties as it will be utilized to solely provide additional value back to the Citelighter user community.
Citelighter collects all highlighted content, papers names, comments, writing times, and dates within ′My Project′ and ′View′ pages to illustrate to teachers how their students are performing in critical phases of the paper writing process.
Citelighter saves all your information online in a private account so you may access it from anywhere.
