We describe a method for evaluating a grammar checking application with hand-bracketed parses. A randomly-selected set of sentences was sub- mitted to a grammar checker in both bracketed and unbracketed formats. A comparison of the result- ing error reports illuminates the relationship be- tween the underlying performance of the parser- grammar system and the error critiques presented to the user.
