You’ll no doubt be familiar with the Lexile framework that helps teachers and parents match reading materials to a child’s unique level. It’s also a powerful tool to measure and track each student’s progress over time as an increasingly fluent, mature reader. So far there’s never been a similar metric for writing assessment.
Assessing student writing is a time consuming and tedious process. Reading through and evaluating dozens of multi-page documents and providing meaningful feedback during your “free” time is no one’s idea of fun.
writing. We’ve done this to help teachers and parents monitor and manage the progress of each student’s writing.
Just as importantly, we’ve designed WriQ to help teachers provide more meaningful, personalized feedback, with greater clarity to improve student confidence.
To build WriQ we’ve collected an enormous data set that has allowed us to create standardized norms for assessing writing, which we combine to create the WriQ Score.
Through these norms, WriQ will help teachers evaluate their students' written communication skills and provide meaningful feedback to improve their students' writing over time - just as Lexile levels do with reading.
