Over 80 million students worldwide use G-Suite for Education. Those students are frequently required to complete writing assignments, which can also be a time-consuming and tedious task for teachers. Unfortunately, only a quarter of students in grades 8 and 12 are proficient in writing. In this session, Jason Carrol will focus on showing how you can easily track progress over time and provide feedback to students using Google Docs in combination with WriQ®, a Google extension from Texthelp. He will explain how WriQ automatically measures elements such as sentence length, age appropriate vocabulary, time on task, and more. Jason will also discuss how it provides teachers with a benchmark to assess the quality of writing by genre-specific criteria, such as plot and analysis.

This sounds like a great tool for teachers and students to gather feedback on their assignments. Students tend to be impressed with technology savvy teacher's antics.

I have never heard of WriQ before, but I now wonder how I ever lived without it! This seems like some a game changer. I am excited about the possibilities with this extension. Thank you!
