Practice exercises help students target and master key writing and grammar skills. These hands-on exercises use a variety of question types to guide students from the sentence level to the paragraph level to the passage level. Students get to drag and drop punctuation, restructure sentences, highlight claims, evidence, and reasoning, and more. Because Practice is adaptive, students see hints, lessons, and extra questions when they’re struggling and see more challenging questions when they get things right.
Quick Writes provide a lightweight way to get students writing frequently. NoRedInk’s collection of Quick Writes features skill-building prompts, text-based prompts, novel analysis prompts, and prompts that get students writing about everything from fun hypothetical scenarios to their fondest personal memories. Quick Writes help teachers achieve a range of objectives, including developing specific writing skills, building writing fluency and stamina, and assessing understanding of course content.
Guided Drafts provide scaffolding to students throughout the writing process, freeing up teachers to deliver individualized support where it’s needed most. As students work on their essays, they’re reminded of important concepts and have access to genre-specific lessons, tutorials, and exemplars that help them grow as writers. NoRedInk’s Guided Draft prompts span more than 10 genres, from Narrative and Expository to Persuasive and Literary Analysis.

Self Review & Peer Review

Mastery-based Peer Review guides students through providing meaningful, actionable feedback on each other’s work.
NoRedInk gives educators access to formative and summative assessment tools that help them identify student strengths and areas for improvement and track skills growth. Planning Diagnostics and Unit Diagnostics help teachers gauge student skills at the start of a new semester or unit and decide where to focus their instruction. After a cycle of instruction, practice, and feedback, Growth Quizzes offer detailed insight into how students have progressed.
