WriQ is a writing achievement tool, made by Texthelp, that helps teach students the art of writing. Students can work with greater independence and teachers have less grading to do.

Teaching writing can be a challenge but with the right tools in place it can be rewarding and more importantly fun!

To help your classes work on their writing skills, the software provides nudges and reminders to encourage students to do a little better each class. It’s tailored to suit each student’s needs, regardless of ability.

By using WriQ, students can: • See their own progress • Get immediate feedback on their work without teacher input • See badges and goals to work towards • See where to make improvements and work independently

By using WriQ, teachers can: • Save time, as spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary checks are done automatically • Give meaningful feedback and motivation directly to your students.

I cannot get it to work. Everytime I launch the sidebar extension, I am told to register. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I can't add students. I can't select rubriks. I can't find any information on the website about WriQ (plenty on their subscription services). I am so ready to leave a positive review but right now, I can't because it seems like an unfinished, buggy mess.

Fantastic tool for engaging students in the writing process and providing teachers the ability to focus on content and less on the subjectivity of grading. WriQ is to grading papers as the Tesla is to autonomous driving cars AWESOME!
