How It’s Used
Use Writable in grades 3-12 to guide writing and feedback in less time. Start with one of our 100+ assignment templates, then edit them to use your own prompts and rubrics. Model a skill or jump right into writing practice. Share assignments with colleagues to save prep time and monitor writing growth.
Assign your students to write and review short, genre-based submissions, or respond to reading or media that’s topical in your classroom. Quick writes come with pre-loaded prompts, but it’s easy to add your own prompt to any assignment in Writable.
“I have moved daily warm-ups onto Writable so that when they finish their reaction response in the program they can instantly go see how their classmates reacted to the excerpt of an article that I have them read. This has been really powerful and is already making an impact on student effort.”
Evan, 8th Grade Teacher, Redmond Schools, OR
Help your students learn how to peer review or write with a specific skill in mind. Guided activities come with leveled, sample writing and lesson plan suggestions. Model what good writing and review looks like, then send students through a guided activity to discuss during whole group instruction.
“I model and teach my students how to give and receive quality feedback in my classroom. I am using Writable when I want my students’ work to go through peer review and revision. I not only love the rubrics that are attached, but also how easy it is for students to see and learn from the work of their peers.”
Sarah, 6th Grade Teacher, Dwight-Englewood School
Whether you’re teaching students to write with a specific paragraph structure or to choose their own format for their writing, Writable essays are built with different levels of scaffolding and instructional support. It’s easy to make edits to rubrics, instructions, or prompts – or import your own using Google Sheets.
“Writable helps me ensure students receive timely feedback and revise their work on an ongoing basis. They don’t have to wait for me to look at their writing to start to improve it. It also takes the pressure off me to “grade” everything. Writable keeps my students focused and motivated to improve their writing.”

Guide students through one-hour on-demand assessments using popular rubrics from writing experts, or import your own rubrics used in your district assessments. Assessment data is easy to visualize in a school dashboard, making it ideal for grade-level teams and/or administrators to monitor growth, calibrate grading, and plan for focus skills/standards.
“We’ve developed a set of rubrics and professional development around our bi-annual 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, 6-12 Curriculum Coordinator ELA, Social Studies, & Literacy, New Britain, CT
Preparing for standardized tests – such as the SBAC, SAT/ACT, or AP exams – doesn’t have to feel like a limiting task. Students can benefit from teacher and anonymous peer feedback, allowing teachers to help model and support successful strategies that tie to longer-term writing skills.
“My AP US History class is doing a great job with Writable, and they are way ahead in their writing compared to other years.”
