Better known as WrAP, the Writing Assessment Program measures student writing achievement to help classroom teachers pinpoint their students’ writing strengths and weaknesses. WrAP is complemented with WRIIT, a companion library of instructional tools and resources. Together, WrAP and WRIIT offer ERB Members a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind writing program!
WrAP can be easily incorporated into any classroom and focused on your student's unique writing goals.
Administer WrAP when it’s best for your students. This flexibility makes WrAP ideal for trimester, semester, or year-round courses.
WrAP can be administered as a paper test only.
Assessment results lose value when they're not in context. That's why we provide a range of available norm groups against which you can compare your students' writing.
WrAP responses are reviewed by expert readers using standardized rubrics to deliver reliable and consistent scores. With WrAP, you can always be confident in your students' results.
Classrooms administering WrAP receive Individual Student Reports containing criterion-referenced data with links to annotated writing samples. We won't just show you how your students scored; we'll show you why so you can help your students continue to improve.
Developed in collaboration with our member schools and writing experts, WrAP is administered across five grade-level bands, with higher performance expectations at each level.
With a wide variety of writing prompts available, educators can select the options that are right for your students. For both types of prompt, students can revise their first drafts before submitting a final version for scoring.
WRIIT is a companion library of writing instructional tools and resources. Together, WrAP and WRIIT offer ERB members a truly comprehensive, one-of-a-kind writing program!
