What's the WriQ score?

WriQ-2-launch-bblog

WriQ® is Texthelp’s newest Google Chrome extension designed to help teachers assess student writing in Google Docs. 

While the extension is new, WriQ itself has been around for over 2 years as an Add-on for  Google Docs. Thanks to feedback from thousands of users, WriQ has been completely re-written as a Google extension to provide more flexibility, features, and a better experience for users. 

Something new to the WriQ extension that was not part of the Add-on is the WriQ score. The WriQ score is meant to provide a meaningful number to help teachers know how well their students are writing by taking into account several useful metrics along with a national norms comparison.

Math teachers have a lot of worksheets that they’ve compiled over the years. Most are probably handouts that they photocopy year-over-year. Some may have been scanned and converted into PDFs, delivered digitally to students for them to print out or handwrite responses to on a separate piece of paper.

But what if I told you the days of faded photocopies and static PDFs with loose paper responses are a thing of the past? That’s right, you can now type math directly within PDFs thanks to the latest integration between EquatIO for Google and Read&Write for Google Chrome PDF Reader.

EquatIO Mobile: Digital Math in the Palm of your Hand

Equatio-mathspace-blog


In past blog posts, we’ve discussed the value of technology in math & STEM classrooms. Most notably, technology supports multiple means of representation and expression, it encourages group collaboration, and it provides students with rapid sharing and teacher feedback.

Despite these benefits, I’m sure we can all think of instances where more traditional forms of education still come in handy. For example, there may be some problems that students prefer to solve on a scratch piece of paper. Or, maybe as a teacher, you still find the whiteboard to be the easiest way to present your math or STEM lesson to the entire class.

We want to help you and your students merge these two forms of learning together so that you can experience the benefits of technology no matter what form the math comes in. That’s why we created EquatIO Mobile.
