The Smart Compose (auto-complete) and Auto-Correct functions in Google Docs will impact the WriQ Student Experience in the following ways:
Though autocorrect will automatically correct the spelling of a completed word, the WriQ BurstMeter will recognize that the word was initially misspelled and it will not count towards the total number of words in a burst. At the conclusion of the burst (a pause of two seconds or more), the BurstMeter will flash yellow, and shake back and forth a bit to alert the writer to a misspelled word.
Words added by Smart Compose will not count towards a Burst total. The BurstMeter will only count words that are typed out in full by the writer.

To turn off Autocorrect, to go to the Tools menu, and uncheck "show spelling suggestions.
