When you’re ready to assign something to a class, you’ll have several feedback and setup options to choose from:
1. Go to “My Assignments” and find the assignment you want your class to complete.
2. Click the “Assign” button on the tile, then “Assign” next to the correct class (or classes).
3. Now, you can specify what the assignment setup should be for your students..
Students write in a Google Doc
Check this box if you want students to write in an embedded Google Doc, otherwise students will need to export their writing to get it into a Google Doc. If you’re using Writable with Google Classroom, this box will automatically be checked.
Important Note: This feature is not recommended for iPad users. Please leave this box unchecked for classes where all or some students will be writing on iPads.
Assign self review
This setting allows you to require that students review their own work as a peer reviewer would, i.e. they’ll need to go through the checklist and give themselves a score that you will be able to see on your dashboard.
Add a peer review cycle to the writing assignment
Check this box if you would like students to complete peer reviews. Then indicate how many reviews they should do to “complete” an assignment.
If your assignment has tabs or more than one writing section (as in assignments with graphic organizers), you'll also be asked to determine when the reviews should happen: After each section/tab is submitted or once the whole assignment has been submitted.
RevisionAid is Writable’s AI feedback tool. Students can then use this feedback to revise and improve their work. If you can't check this box, you may need to setup RevisionAid for your assignment. (Learn more about setting up RevisionAid here.)
Enable Originality Check
Originality Check is a plagiarism checker that can be used by both teachers and students. If you don't see this as an option for your assignment, you may need to have it turned on for your account. (Learn more about Originality Check here.)
Add assignments to Google Classroom stream
If you have imported your classes from Google Classroom, you will also have the option to post a shortcut to the assignment in Writable in your Classroom stream. If you do not see that option, then the class you're assigning to is not a Google Classroom class. (Learn more about importing from Google Classroom here.)
