Why build Analytics?

Understanding what students have done well and what they’re struggling with is a vital part of teaching writing, and knowing how they respond to feedback is equally important.

As teachers, we spend innumerable hours responding to student writing, often without knowing how students address our feedback. Here are just a few of the questions WriteLab Analytics will help you answer:

  • How do I know if my student learned from my comments? Will they help her as she revises this essay, as she writes the next one, or in the class she takes next semester?
  • How did my student react to my comments? Did he move on to the next comment after five minutes or after five seconds?
  • Which comments do my student find useful? Have I asked too many questions? Given too many directives? 
  • How many of my comments did my student actually read? How many inspired revision?

For every piece of feedback students receive, WriteLab gives you feedback in return – feedback that tells you about your students’ writing habits. 

Whether you’re pairing students for peer review or showing how your writing center affects student progress, WriteLab’s comprehensive metrics can help you make informed decisions.

With Analytics for Instructors and Analytics for Writing Centers, we offer you unique information about how your students write.
