Teachers Love Ink!

"As a teacher, this is making me rethink how I have traditionally graded writing. This program helped me look at writing in a more equitable and objective way. It matched the rubric expectations, what was actually taught, with student work. This levels the playing field because it does not compare writing in a subjective way; it analyzes each piece independently against my lesson objectives. I enjoyed conferencing with my students and felt that the goals and "next steps" offered were logical and attainable." - Kathy, CA

Propel Learning with Immediate Feedback!

Say goodbye to the waiting game! Ink provides instantaneous, actionable feedback at every stage of the writing journey. Our intelligent automation not only supports students but also ensures their thinking is not just visible but elevated.

Instant

With our advanced computing software, we deliver timely feedback on students' writing skills. This immediate feedback is more effective in helping students grow as writers.

Personalized

Differentiated

Differentiate support so all students engage in the writing process. Ink cultivates a love for writing by offering dynamic, personalized support that resonates with each student.

Gain Powerful Insights

Insights Data delivers clear dashboards that report on how each grade level is doing and how each school site is performing across a district. This kind of comprehensive data is used to:

  • quickly understand what is happening with writing across a campus and/or district.
  • identify grade levels that might be struggling.
  • address opportunity gaps with writing instruction.
  • analyze trends in order to replicate success.
  • plan professional development and identify interventions.

Effectively Target Skills

Insights Data instantly identifies essential writing skills for whole class instruction, making it easy for teachers to know what writing skills they to emphasize in their lessons.

This level of data is also critical for grade level collaborative teams and PLCs. Teachers can easily reference and discuss student work, evaluate the effectiveness of specific teaching strategies, and set goals for improvement.

Easily Group Students 

Knowing what each writer needs to become a better writer is critical. That is why our dashboards clearly explain how students are doing with each writing skill. Teachers can...

  • effortlessly create student groups based on their learning needs.
  • easily facilitate small group instruction and differentiate what and how students learn.

Get the Whole Picture

Teachers and administrators can quickly identify students who are meeting standards and students who need a little help. This ensures all students get what they need as they develop and strengthen academic writing skills.
