Research shows that feedback and revision are the keys to writing growth. Writable lets teachers choose how to use feedback to support and scaffold their instruction – and to move from grader to guide.
Once students begin writing, Writable’s Feedback Engine guides authentic, on-demand feedback and grading support.
Teachers can use Live Feedback for ‘in the moment’ conferencing and from the virtual grading stack teachers can filter for multiple types of teacher grading. While giving feedback a teacher can view student self and peer reviews, tie comments to rubrics, leave video or audio feedback, check authenticity with Originality Check powered by Simcheck from Turnitin, and use RevisionAid for feedback suggestions and AI-powered scoring.
Students are guided during the feedback with comment stems and score explanations during peer and self-review, plus they can use Originality Check to help cite sources, GrammarAid for grammar, spelling, and syntax support, and RevisionAid for on-demand revision recommendations
I’ve really seen my students writing improve as a result of using Writable. Students feel safe submitting their work and are excited to get feedback and then make it better, in an attempt to create the best product that they can.

Supports proven pedagogy.
Writable’s program is based on the research shows better feedback on student writing creates better revision, and that revision drives growth. Learn how Writable uses scaffolded, authentic feedback powered by the Feedback Engine to help drive purposeful revision and writing growth.
The research is clear: providing students time for structured practice, coaching them to give quality feedback to one another, and engaging in meaningful revision can all help writers grow.

Differentiate learning and effectively intervene.
Writable helps you see what’s happening throughout the writing process – earlier. See who’s “on watch” for each skill and model what good revision looks like. When educators have actionable data during the writing process they effectively intervene.
Educators can differentiate instruction to accommodate all students with multi-level assignments, student groups, and scaffolding through resources, graphic organizers, sentence starters, and more.
Save time while grading and giving feedback by using grading filters to decide how and when you’ll grade, then move through your “stack” faster with stored comments and a streamlined workflow. Scores can automatically sync with Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, HMH Ed, and Microsoft Teams.
Student work is simple to print and data reports can easily be exported and shared via PDF, CSV, or Google Sheets to support parent conferences and coaching sessions.
Writable has caused a major shift for me as a teacher this year in the way I assess writing. It creates reports and generates data comparing students initial attempt to subsequent attempts, and shows levels of growth that are so vital to use as teachers.

Monitor writing growth.
Writable makes it easy to visualize writing progress over time for groups or individual students. Reporting and dashboards enable School Leaders to monitor growth, identify skill gaps, and plan for instruction.
Teachers can see what’s happening throughout the writing process by viewing who is “on watch” and “on target” before an assignment is completed. Actionable data allows for impactful interventions and customized learning.
