Overview

 

 

Writable is a guided writing program for grades 3-12 that helps teachers scaffold and motivate students to become purposeful, proficient writers, and helps schools assess and monitor writing growth. With 600+ assignments and prompts (or create your own), and district or state assessments, Writable helps teachers save time on prep and grading while focusing their instruction. Writable is based around the research that shows better feedback drives better revision, which is the key to writing growth. Because of this, Writable has developed a feedback engine that includes guided self-review, anonymous peer review, AI-powered feedback, and many teacher feedback options. Writable works alongside Canvas to deliver timely yet structured feedback, sync your gradebook, and identify students in need of support.

Testimonials

 

Troy Hicks, Professor of English/Ed

Even with the ability to track changes in a word processor and review rough drafts, our students’ writing processes have – until now – been largely invisible. Writable invites teachers to scaffold and participate in their students’ writing, response, and revision in ways we simply were unable to see before.

Kelly D., 9th Grade Teacher

Writable has been great for trying to increase the frequency of writing in my classroom. Students 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.

Sarah M., 6th Grade Teacher

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. This helps hold them accountable for presenting their best work. As a result, my students got really excited about the prompts and ability to write for a broader audience.

Dena G., 4th/5th Grade Teacher

Writable is such a powerful tool to embed in your classroom. With Writable, not only do my students love to write more, but they look forward to the revision process since it’s done by their own peers in an anonymous way. Taking away the students’ names have led to more authentic reflections and truthful feedback instead of only selecting to revise their friends’ work.

Greg Garner, Instructional Coach

Writable focuses and motivates the process of writing throughout all phases of the writer’s workshop model. Teachers can easily progress-monitor and students can self-assess their own development, making learning to be a better writer easier than ever.

David R., AP US History Teacher

My AP US History class is doing a great job with Writable, and they are way ahead in their writing compared to other years.

Jill R., 7th Grade ELA Teacher

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.

Elizabeth C., 6-12th Curriculum Coordinator

We created district-wide reading/writing assessments. We unified the rollout and grading of those assessments by using Writable – a platform that really helped us unify the scoring and how the assessments were given. Writable adapted it to the rubrics that a district is using.

Evan G., 6th-8th Grade ELA Teacher

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.

Julie C., 12th Grade Teacher

Writable turned my class into a feedback machine. Students revise more because they get feedback while they are in the process of writing. They are building good writing habits, and their work product shows it.

Tyler M., ELD Specialist

I shared Writable with colleagues at a “Coherence” meeting with a few other schools within our district. I was surrounded by about 10 teachers and administrators all marveling at the assessment we had built and the pretty data we had collected. We were able to agree on proficient writing examples and determine how to roll assessment data back into instruction

Tom C., 4th Grade Teacher

With Writable, I’m seeing much more focus with my students during our writer’s workshop time. There’s a small cohort of students that always need a lot of support, and they are now more independent.

Val B., 7th Grade ELA Teacher

I have seen a big growth in my students writing throughout the years using Writable. My students though have actually seen their improvement in writing and how enhanced their skills have become.

RevisionAid gives students earlier, targeted feedback, especially in the areas of structure, development, and organization. Research shows that better feedback drives better revision, which is the key to writing growth. This is why RevisionAid is designed to be an additional source of feedback and support, working alongside human-based feedback to help students improve their work.

Part 1/3 - Writable Case Study: Consolidated School District of New Britain, CT

Elizabeth Crooks is the recently retired 6-12 Curriculum Coordinator in ELA, Social Studies, and Science Literacy for the Consolidated School District of New Britain, CT. She recently sat down with us to share her story and successes around implementing Writable into her school district. Three years ago Liz began to unify and monitor writing proficiency across subjects and grade levels in her school district. New Britain is a large school district with over 10,000 students. New Britain, CT is also a high poverty district, but does not receive the state funding that larger cities in Connecticut receive. In fact, New Britain consistently has one of the lowest per pupil expenditures. In part 1 of 3, Liz shares the problems she faced in her district, and how she turned to Writable as an affordable solution for her district with some surprising results!

Not only was student engagement and motivation immediately amplified, but students using Writable saw a 1.7x increase in writing growth compared to cohorts not using Writable. Liz also saw a 30% increase in scores for their district calibrated assessments.
