What is the research is behind Writable?
Writable was founded on the research that shows better feedback leads to better revision, which is the key to creating writing growth. You can read more about our research in our white paper: Achieving Writing Proficiency by Dr. Troy Hicks.
You can also explore our 3-part video case study on how Elizabeth Crooks, the recently retired 6–12 Curriculum Coordinator in ELA, Social Studies, and Science Literacy for the Consolidated School District of New Britain, CT, successfully implemented Writable into her school district as an affordable solution. Her results included:
1.7x increase in writing growth compared to cohorts not using Writable.
30% increase in scores for their district calibrated assessments.
Student engagement and motivation were meaningfully amplified.
