Workshop Outline

PART 1 – How to incorporate trait writing skills & curriculum criteria within a continuum of learning.

We will show you how writing skills, that encompass all of the traits of writing, form a developmental scope and sequence.  We will look at how this also supports teachers to develop instructional plans that meet curriculum requirements and the writing instructional model that your school uses.

PART 3 – How a common language and a skills-based continuum provides whole-school writing assessment data that is quantitative, reliable and reportable.

This will be demonstrated through a practical example of how a trait-skill framework can increase reliability and accuracy, which supports consistency of assessment, including moderation. 

PART 2 – Using a skills based assessment continuum to guide teaching and learning at students’ point of need (Hands on practical exercise).

We will give participants access to the Scriibi assessment tool to assess a piece of writing, identify growth opportunities from the data and generate learning goals at students’ point of need. Don’t worry, we will guide and support you through each step.

Part 4 – Teaching skills based mini-lessons, based on data, for better learning outcomes.

It’s what teachers do with data that has an impact on student learning. We will demonstrate how teachers can maximise learning growth through explicit teaching that targets students’ point of need and ensures they are working within their zone of proximal development.

Scriibi helps schools:

  • Develop a whole school common language and shared understanding of the qualities of good writing
  • Assess with consistency and accuracy, across a whole school, using a VIC curriculum aligned rubric
  • Use data to inform teaching and provide timely and specific feedback to students
  • Set individual and achievable writing goals that supports independence and self-reflection
  • Build teacher capability through our Professional Development Series and on-demand pedagogical support
