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.

WriQ along with the preplanned rubrics appear to help ease grading for the teacher as will as direct the student in the creation of their writing assignment. Looking forward to trying it out the year.

WriQ and the rubrics sound great. Anything that can help a teacher more effectively and efficiently grade writing and give students quality, prompt feedback is a great asset.
