Less than a quarter of students in the U.S. today are proficient in writing according to the Nation's Report Card. This includes students who speak English as a second language, students with disabilities, and others who have not yet mastered the skills necessary to become proficient writers. What if you had a free tool that could help you assess and improve student writing - while saving you time? Join Jason Carroll, Global Product Manager at Texthelp®, as he explores WriQ®, a free Google Add-on from Texthelp that helps you track progress and provide feedback to students using Google Docs for common writing tasks. WriQ automatically measures elements such as sentence length, age-appropriate vocabulary, correct word sequences, and more. You can also use it to get a benchmark to assess the quality of writing by genre-specific criteria, such as plot and analysis. You will learn not only how to quickly assess and provide feedback to students of all ages writing in Google Docs, but also how to track progress over time.
