Scriibi helps students reach their full potential as writers

Scriibi is an online tool that supports teachers to develop their students’ written communication skills.

We developed our tools in classrooms with teachers, who were able to improve their capability as writing instructors, measure teacher professional practice, run lessons at their students’ exact point of need and assess student work.

Our tools are easily integrated with any writing framework.

Every school we work with honors the writing process, but their approach to teaching writing is often unique, and can vary from the writer’s workshop to sequenced lessons based on text types.

Our evidence based teaching and learning tools are easily integrated into any existing framework and will help teachers develop their professional practice and differentiate learning to help students reach their full potential.

Alternatively, we can also help you implement our recommended approach.

Individual student growth along a continuum of learning.

Each student sits within a continuum of learning for over 30 writing skills.  The continuum is independent of year level or age.

Curriculum requirements are embedded and learning progressions for each skill is recorded.  The ‘granular’ explicit approach over multiple skills builds an accurate and moderated progression point for mandatory reporting.

This enables teachers to focus on teaching to individual student needs, to maximise their learning growth.

Everything we create is driven by best teaching and learning practices.

All our resources and tools are strongly aligned with National and State professional teaching and learning models and frameworks.  This includes High Impact Teaching Strategies, Peer Observation, Feedback and Reflection models.

Summative & Formative Assessment

Teachers build their own assessment rubrics to suit different purposes.  Build a rubric to assess for a unit of learning or assess students across all skills to gain a comprehensive snapshot of where they sit along a continuum of learning.

Curriculum requirements are embedded in the continuum and progression points  recorded. This takes the headache out of moderation, and most importantly, provides teachers with data to inform their planning.

Data collected during the term also provides a progression point for reporting

In each lesson, teachers evaluate and track student learning by submitting a simple online checklist during or after lessons.  The data captured provides students with timely and specific feedback and helps teachers plan subsequent lesson at their students’ point of need. 

Self & Peer Observation Tool

Research has shown that what teachers do in the classroom has the biggest impact on student learning.  

Use the observation feedback tool to support whole school, team and individual professional learning goals.

By engaging in regular opportunities to learn from peers and also give and receive feedback, schools can build a strong culture of self reflection, collaborative learning and best classroom practice.

Schools that use Scriibi are seeing significant gains in student outcomes.

Data showing student gains 6 weeks after using Scriibi.  Schools are also reporting improved teacher professional practice.

Structured lessons that target essential writing skills

Our lessons are painstakingly written and tested by highly experienced and passionate teachers to optimise learning for students.  

To ensure content is relevant, engaging and pitched at the right level, teachers provide us with feedback, using a lesson feedback tool.  

Each lesson follows the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model.  This gives every student the opportunity to practice new skills and receive feedback or additional support as they confidently move towards independence.  A consistent approach and structure also ensures consistency of classroom teaching and learning across a whole school.
