Managing feedback to scaffold your writers becomes easier with Writable. Just click ‘Assign’ and choose from anonymous peer review, self-review, RevisionAid, or teacher grading. While an essay may benefit from fuller peer feedback and revision, other assignments – like quick writes or response to reading – may need just a self-review or RevisionAid as students write.
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.
Research shows that better feedback drives better revision, and that revision drives growth. Learn how
Writable uses scaffolded, authentic feedback – including student self-review, anonymous peer review, and
teacher feedback – 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.

Writable helps you see what’s happening throughout the writing process – earlier. See who’s “on watch” for each skill, model what good revision looks like, and differentiate instruction for struggling writers through sub-groups and scaffolded assignments.
Use grading filters to decide how and when you’ll grade, then move through your “stack” faster with stored comments and a streamlined workflow. Final scores can be exported to Canvas, Schoology, Google Classroom, Google Sheets, and more – and teachers can print student work from Google Docs for portfolios or conferences.
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.

Spot skill gaps, identify proficient models for instruction, and help your teams move from assessment to instruction.
