General comments
Word count is a very simple plugin for the Atto text editor. It adds an icon to the text editor toolbar which, when clicked, reports on the number of words and letters in the entered text.
Usability
After installing the plugin, an administrator needs to add word count in the toolbar config. Word count is super easy for students and teachers to use. When a student is composing an online text assignment submission, for example, they can simply click the word count icon (#) in the text editor toolbar and the number of words and letters in the text will be displayed. The number of words reported by the word count plugin will be consistent with elsewhere in Moodle where words are counted, ...
Technical
Word count is currently maintained by Moodle HQ developer Damyon Wiese. It is also one of the specially selected plugins to feature in the [Moodle for School](https://moodle.com/cloud/school/) package. As such, you can expect its code to be of a high quality and for it to be reliably maintained in the long term. Although the current version is for Moodle 2.7, I installed it on a 3.1.1 site and found it to work perfectly.
