Understand Reporting Options in Writable

Recognize teachers' hard work and efforts at this stage of Writable use! Teachers have created an account, prepped an assignment, assigned it to a class, and provided feedback. Every type of feedback in Writable provides actionable data. Because all rubrics are tagged by category, skill, and standard, as feedback is given or reported by our AI tools, insight into student writing growth becomes available in three locations: The Assignment Dashboard, The Growth Report, and The Proficiency & Recommendation Report. Teachers should be encouraged to access reporting options in Writable.

Why Reviewing Reports with Student Writing Data Matters

DRIP, DRIP, DRIP! Have you ever heard this term used in education? It stands for data-rich and information-poor, a common challenge facing teachers. They are inundated by data while struggling to find helpful information to guide decision-making that will increase student learning and guide effective instructional practices. Once teachers have graded in Writable, they can easily configure reports to make informed decisions relative to instructional outcomes, student groupings and take actionable next steps leading to student success.

Considerations for Your District or School

Once data is being explored district, school, or grade level-wide, teachers and school leaders may discover questions like "Do my teachers score the same rubric consistently? Or "Of the standards that are being assessed, have they been identified and understood by the teachers scoring the writing?" And, "Have the teachers agreed on how the rubric applies to particular examples of student work?" Finding ways to create consistency and alignment with rubric scoring and its use is a natural next step. Team Grade is a helpful feature in Writable that analyzes the scoring patterns of teachers, making it easy to calibrate grading across a team, school, or district.
