  • Allows educators to assess writing using rubrics, keeping writing assessment consistent across students
  • Measures productivity (how much students write), accuracy (how many errors they make), pace (the speed at which they write), and maturity (the maturity of their vocabulary)
  • Monitors progress over time and displays a single WriQ score to give educators a more accurate picture of student progress, at student and class level
  • Allows educators to give meaningful, personalised feedback, with greater clarity to improve student confidence and achievement

School Leaders

Analyse student writing. Use data to identify patterns in writing performance, track and report on progress, support instructional decision making/design and compare achievement with national averages.

  • See an overview of school progress. This will include the amount of words written, average WriQ score, accuracy and more
  • Provides a standardised benchmark for fair marking and delivers comparable insights on writing level within by school, year group, or classroom level to help identify areas that could require additional support.
  • Grants schools the ability to add customised rubrics to suit their needs for targeted analysis
  • By allowing students to track their own writing progress and replacing the time-consuming task for teachers of assessing written passages manually teachers in your school will have more time for instructional lessons, lessening the need for additional resources.

For your students

Icon for Student Experience Student Experience

Keep students motivated, engaged and achieving in writing.

WriQ puts students in charge of their own learning. By giving each student access to their own personalised mini dashboard, the WriQmeter, they can instantly track how long they can write for, before taking a pause or stopping (a writing burst). The positive nudge notifications spur students on to do a little better each day, only ever in competition with themselves.

  • At a glance, each student can visualise their writing progress in real-time
  • Gives students instant access to positive, immediate feedback on their own writing, without relying on teacher intervention - speeding up the feedback loop
  • Allows students to get a picture of their most frequently used language and how they’re writing for specific subject areas
  • Students can track their own writing progress daily, weekly, or monthly and work towards goals and achievement badges, adding a fun element to the writing process
