eWrite is an online writing assessment for students in Years 5 to 8 (ages 10-13).

eWrite features advanced analysis techniques that provide instant diagnostic feedback on students' skills across a range of writing genres including:

  • Narrative
  • Descriptive
  • Report
  • Persuasive writing

Students interact directly with the online assessment, typing into the secure system. eWrite automatically marks the students' writing and then produces a detailed report, pinpointing individual students' writing strengths and weaknesses.  Interactive group reports are also generated.   

eWrite is designed for students to complete independently.  All instructions are given on screen.  Students type plain text into the online system.  There is no spellchecker or grammar correction tool and students have no access to dictionaries.  Planning and editing time is built into the assessment.

Test time: 20-25 minutes
