Model reviewing in Writable with any model text or essay.

Updated over a week ago

In this article, you'll learn how to add a model response to an assignment. Adding model writing is a great way to demonstrate expectations for an assignment. Assignments with a modeled response give students the opportunity to review the writing using the same assignment rubric they will be graded on.

1. Click 'My Assignments' and find the assignment you’d like to edit. You can use the drop-down to filter by which classes it has been assigned to, or search by the assignment title.

❗ Note: It's best to edit 'Inactive Assignments'. Some editing features are disabled for 'Active Assignments'. If editing an assignment that students have already started, please keep in mind how your changes may impact existing work.

2. Click on the assignment you would like to edit.

3. Then click the 'Edit' button.

4. In the Prompt section, click the three-lined icon and select 'Create Model Response'.

5. Click 'Create'.

6. Type or paste your sample writing into the text box.

7. If the assignment includes a reading, you may need to click 'Check & Submit' on the right of the screen to submit. Click 'Submit' and then confirm your modeled response.

8. Complete a review of your model. These scores will be used as an 'answer key' for students when they review the model writing. Use the rubric on the right side and select the appropriate scores. When you're finished, click 'Submit'.

9. Now you can follow these steps to assign to your class(es). Once assigned, students will click on the 'Review' section of the assignment. They will complete a review of the same modeled response. Students will receive immediate feedback on whether their review matched your rubric scores.
