Monitor SBAC Skills

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 finish SBAC practice, teachers can spot skill gaps and help students make progress in less time.

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.

“The digital scaffolding of the assignments is great. Google Classroom integration was flawless and fast! Finally, the feedback and grading from the teacher side were great for me. I am someone who hates the idea of having to grade a batch of essays, and this process made it so much more palatable.”
