When you’re ready to assign something to a class, you’ll have several feedback and setup options to choose from:

1. Go to 'My Assignments' and find the assignment you want your class to complete.

2. Click the 'Assign' button on the tile.

3. Assign to the correct class or classes.

4. Choose your options. Keep reading to learn more about each of the available options.

Tip! You can edit the assignment and feedback settings after assigning using these directions.


Submission Type

  • Check the box to determine how you would like the assignment to be submitted. The default selection is the Writable Editor. This is the recommended option.

  • Selecting Google Doc will allow students access to Google's editing tools, however, this selection is not recommended if students are using Writable on mobile devices. Some feedback tools, such as GrammarAid, will not work if this option is selected. Students can export to Google Docs once their writing is complete. Export directions can be found here.

  • Selecting Audio/Video allows students to enter their submission using ONLY an audio or video file.


Differentiated Prompts

If your assignment includes differentiated prompts, you will see an option to assign with differentiated levels and to assign each student a level.

Assign self-review

This setting requires students to review their own work as a peer reviewer would, i.e. they’ll need to go through the rubric and give themselves a score that you will be able to see on your dashboard. To learn more about this feature, please click here.


Add a peer review cycle to the writing assignment

Check this box if you would like students to complete peer reviews. Peer reviewers will anonymously score writing submissions and leave feedback. Click here to learn more about peer review.

Note: If your assignment has tabs, or more than one writing section (as in assignments with graphic organizers), you'll also be asked to determine when the reviews should happen: After each section/tab is submitted or once the whole assignment has been submitted.


AI-Powered Student Supports

Enable RevisionAid

Assign to LMS-Linked Classes

When linked to your LMS (ex. Google Classroom, Schoology, or Canvas), Writable can assign directly to your courses and students can access the assignment in the LMS.

Add assignments to Google Classroom stream (Optional)

If you have imported your classes from Google Classroom, you will also have the option to post a shortcut to the assignment in Writable to your Classroom stream. You'll also be asked to indicate how many points you'd like the assignment to be worth in your gradebook. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning to is not a Google Classroom class.

Learn more about assigning to the Google Classroom stream here.

Add assignments to Schoology (Optional)

If you have imported your classes from Schoology you will want to select 'Create in Schoology' in order for your students to see the assignment in Schoology. You'll also be asked to indicate how many points you'd like the assignment to be worth in your gradebook. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning is not a Schoology class.

Learn more about assigning to Schoology courses here.

Add assignments to Canvas (Optional)

If you have imported your classes from Canvas you will want to select 'Create in Canvas' in order for your students to see the assignment in their Canvas course. You'll also be asked to indicate how many points you'd like the assignment to be worth in your gradebook. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning is not a Canvas-linked class.

Schedule assignment for later
