Improve Writing Skills and Reading Comprehension

WriteToLearn gives immediate, specific feedback that helps students practice writing through review and edit cycles. Over four studies, students using the essay writing component of WriteToLearn experienced an average increase in proficiency of 46%. Using the summary writing component, students' reading comprehension also improved in direct relationship to WriteToLearn's use. Benefits of using the summarization component have been empirically documented as well. Read our complete Efficacy Report to get the facts.

 

Calculating Teacher Time

Teaching writing has always been a tricky balancing act. Between lesson planning, classroom instruction, grading, and living your life, there are only so many hours in the day, and there’s a very real limit to how much writing practice a teacher can assign. See how WriteToLearn’s automated scoring made a difference for Georgia middle school teacher Jeff Pence in 2014-2015:

  • 129: Number of writing students per day
  • 33: Number of essays/summaries each student completed
  • 6: Average number of times each essay was submitted and scored
  • 25,542: Number of drafts that were thoroughly evaluated and returned to the students with specific & feedback absolute consistency
  • 3,193: The number of days it would take a teacher to grade these assignments if he or she graded for 2 hours each day--that's nearly 9 years without a day off!

Since Jeff began teaching with WriteToLearn, he’s seen his students’ writing skills improve significantly—across the board.
