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. Make selections based on the desired assignment expectations.

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. 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.

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 checklist 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.

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.

Enable RevisionAid

RevisionAid is Writable’s AI feedback tool. Students can then use this feedback to revise and improve their work. If you can't check this box, you may need to setup RevisionAid for your prompt. Learn more about setting up RevisionAid here.

Enable Originality Check

Originality Check is a plagiarism checker that can be used by both teachers and students. If you don't see this as an option for your assignment, you may need to have it turned on for your account. (Learn more about Originality Check here.)

Add assignments to Google Classroom stream

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. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning to is not a Google Classroom class. (Learn more about importing from Google Classroom here.)

Add assignments to Schoology

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. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning is not a Schoology class. (Learn more about importing rosters from Schoology here.)
