Create better writers, reduce teacher workload, and track progress over time.
WriQ is a writing achievement tool, made by Texthelp, that helps teach students the art of writing. Students can work with greater independence and teachers have less grading to do. Teaching writing can be a challenge but with the right tools in place it can be rewarding and more importantly fun! To help your classes work on their writing skills, the software provides nudges and reminders to encourage students to do a little better each class. It’s tailored to suit each student’s needs, regardless of ability. By using WriQ, students can: • See their own progress • Get immediate feedback on their work without teacher input • See badges and goals to work towards • See where to make improvements and work independently By using WriQ, teachers can: • Save time, as spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary checks are done automatically • Give meaningful feedback and motivation directly to your students. • Use data to identify patterns in writing performance. • Track progress and support curriculum planning • Use the WriQ score to compare across the class, the school, the district or even the state • Work seamlessly with Google Docs and Google Classroom You can download this free version to get a taste of what WriQ can do during a 30 day free trial.

I can't find any information on the website about WriQ (plenty on their subscription services). I am so ready to leave a positive review but right now, I can't because it seems like an unfinished, buggy mess.
