Almost 75% of students nationally in 8th and 12th grades are below proficient in writing. Students struggle with grammar. However, explicit grammar instruction is ineffective to address students' individual learning needs.
WritingPoint, by Era Metrics, Inc., is a supplemental online tool for elementary to high school classrooms that helps improve student grammar. WritingPoint can be implemented across subject areas and is a tool that can be used for any writing assignment. WritingPoint's three pillars for success include:
Differentiation: Teachers can differentiate and scaffold their own writing assignments according to specific student needs.
Real-time Feedback: Unlike grammar editing tools, WritingPoint provides students with real time instruction on how to fix their grammar errors.
Data Tracker: Teachers can track grammar errors through data displays that can be analyzed to target grammar remediation.
