Assessment Made Easy
Writable takes the pain out of benchmark writing assessments. Try our spring benchmark assessments and organize your writing instruction and practice for 2018-2019. How it works:
- Start with Writable pre-built rubrics or your own.
- Students write (in one class period!) in Google Docs or Writable.
- Teachers grade and calibrate in Writable.
- Spot skills that need development and plan ahead for Fall.
Use Writable’s pre-built assessments or create your own district rubrics. Send your rubrics to our formative assessment curriculum team and get free consultation this spring, or upload them using our rubric builder.
Keep assessments to a one-hour class period, where they belong. Students take assessments in Writable or Google Docs, then teachers can use quick-grade tools in Writable. Scores show up in your school-level dashboard, and can be exported to Google Classroom or Google Sheets.
Make it easy to compare multiple teachers’ grades on your next district assessment, allowing you to manage mystery grading vs. a pre-scored benchmark.
Monitor Writing Growth
Writable makes assessment and assignment data easy to visualize in a school dashboard, helping grade-level teams and administrators to monitor growth and plan ahead – by student or skill. After students take an assessment or finish a series of assignments, spot skill gaps and help your teams move from assessment to instruction.
Save Teachers Time
Every assignment created in Writable can be adapted, then shared, to save time on prep and professional development. Curriculum leadership can upload a cohesive set of rubrics once, then make them available to their team of teachers throughout the year. Finally, teachers can use quick-grade tools to give feedback to high-needs students first, or use peer review to continue feedback between grading cycles.
“We’ve developed a set of rubrics and professional development around our benchmark assessment process in reading and writing. Writable was able to administer on-demand assessments using our writing rubrics, then help us save time on grading and instructional planning across ELA and Social Studies.”
Elizabeth Crooks, 6-12 Curriculum Coordinator ELA, Social Studies, & Science Literacy, New Britain, CT
Preparing for standardized tests – such as the SBAC, SAT/ACT, or AP exams – doesn’t have to cause teachers anxiety. Students can benefit from additional practice and anonymous peer feedback in Writable, while teachers save time by assigning from a library of real exam prompts and rubrics.
“My AP US History class is doing a great job with Writable, and they are way ahead in their writing compared to other years.”
David Riddick, AP US History Teacher, Miller School of Albemarle
Works with Google
With Writable, Google schools have no additional setup or accounts to create. Schools using Google Classroom can sync course rosters and share Writable assignments in the Classroom stream, then have students “turn in” writing from a Google Doc.
