WrAP: Writing Assessment Program
Grade 3 – 12
Building Better Writers
Building upon ERB’s long and successful history of setting the highest standards for quality writing, WrAP for 2016 -17 has been updated to provide a full suite of new Resources – WRIIT Writing Resources for Insight, Interpretation and Teaching! These new easily accessible resources will help any teacher of writing:
- Examine students’ skills across grade levels, traits, and genres with our all new Anchor Sets
- Understand a student’s development as a writer using our new Learning Progressions
- Support instruction through sample exemplar essays and new sample prompts, and inform curriculum development
And all of these resources are built using ERB school student essays – a great group of writers in schools like yours!
WrAP offers two prompt options for schools to select by grade as desired. Our stimulus text based prompts link close reading to writing and include articles and passages for students to read, analyze and use to inform their response. Our popular non-stimulus prompts allow students to pull from their experience and show their writing development in response to a shorter piece of text. Both support instruction and work with any curriculum to help create great writers! And unlike other writing options we provide objective reader scored results that also allow you to compare your results with students in other ERB schools.
WrAP age appropriate and engaging writing prompts are available in both English and Spanish.
