Get on Track with Marco Learning this School Year

At Marco Learning, we know that the best way to combat ELA learning loss is with frequent writing practice, personalized feedback, and detailed writing data. That may sound simple, but it’s not always easy to accomplish. Since the pandemic, students have been writing less, and they have been getting less feedback on their writing.

As you’re planning for the upcoming school year, it’s critical that you have a writing plan that can support ALL of your students’ writing recovery—and that’s where Marco Learning comes in. We provide detailed feedback on student writing and professional development for teachers that can help you rebuild your writing program next year.

Marco Learning’s writing loss and recovery products may qualify for federal funds under the ESSA: Title 1, Part A, ARP Act under the Emergency Funding initiatives, and more. If you want to learn more, please request a quote and we will be in touch.

Writing Benchmarks

Writing Benchmarks

Better data fuels better student outcomes. Now more than ever, schools need fast, reliable writing data to know where students are and how to get them where they need to be. Marco Learning’s Writing Benchmark Support empowers schools to implement writing benchmarks with fidelity. We take care of all of the operational challenges that come with large scale assessments, delivering fast, normed, complete, and reliable student performance data (plus feedback!) hassle-free. With grading support, writing benchmarks become a powerful teaching and learning tool for all stakeholders—students, teachers, and administrators.

Key Benefits

  • Objective data without the headache or cost of large-scale assessments like hiring subs, pulling teachers out of class, norming and calibrating, marathon grading days
  • Student data (plus feedback!) is fast, normed, and complete
  • Upshift teacher time from grading to collaborative data analysis, instructional planning and professional development
  • Increase teacher buy-in and assessment fidelity

Need Help Planning?

Writing benchmarks are a powerful tool to help ALL stakeholders better understand, track, and boost student preparedness, performance, and growth. To be most effective, benchmarks should be designed in conjunction with thoughtful and complete feedback and data cycles. This is no small task — it requires upfront planning, coordination, key teacher and student supports, and of course, feedback.

One of our chief focuses at Marco Learning is to partner with districts and schools to think rigorously about what formative assessment of writing should look like to best prepare students for success.
