Belcher Diagnostic Word Macro

To save time when writing, and to help my students when they’re learning to edit their sentences, I coded a Word macro to automate “The Belcher Diagnostic Test” from Wendy Laura Belcher’s Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks.

I’ve posted the belcher diagnostic macro here, as well as a color key.

For instructions on how to run the macro, see my screencast below. Of course, to interpret the results of the diagnostic, you’ll need to access a copy of the book 🙂
