LISA has an easy-to-use testing platform that steps students through their writing.

LISA gets students to plan their ideas before writing, and to check before submitting their answers.

Spellcheck and autocorrect have been turned off so that students must do their own original writing.

Everyone is a teacher of literacy

All teachers need to share in the explicit teaching of writing literacy.

LISA gives teachers in every subject a simple and concise framework to improve students' writing, with 4 shared conventions:

Ideas

Organisation

Variety

Accuracy

Because most teachers want their students to write for a reason, e.g. creating a design brief, LISA provides an easy-to-apply rubric for all teachers and students, in any subject.

LISA simplifies the mechanics of writing literacy to enable ALL teachers to easily include it in their teaching programmes.

CONCISE RUBRIC

LISA works across international curricula* to clearly define the mechanics of writing.  It identifies 4 conventions that make it easier for students to learn and teachers to support them. 

01

IDEAS

Students write to share ideas and detailed information about them.   Effective writing has central and supporting ideas, along with details such as statistics, dialogue, or stories that elaborate those ideas.

03

VARIETY

Students use a variety of words, sentence types, language features, and the correct level of formality (register) to add impact and effect to their writing.

02

ORGANISATION

Students organise their writing to help the reader understand them.  This organisation must be appropriate to the purpose of their writing, e.g. to persuade readers to agree with something or take a specific action.

04

ACCURACY

Students spell correctly, and use punctuation and grammar (syntax) accurately to help others understand their writing.

*LISA aligns with different international curricula including the Common Core State Standards, the new Australian Curriculum, and the New Zealand Curriculum including the latest literacy changes.

LISA grades students' writing and shares data back to teachers and school leaders - IMMEDIATELY.

Teach students about writing for a purpose and audience

LISA develops students' ability to identify and write appropriately for their purpose and audience.

It grades students based on their ability to adapt their writing to one of three common purposes:

Explanatory

Students write to inform others - to share information or explain processes.

Persuasive

Students write to persuade others to do something or to get them agree with the writer.

Narrative

Students write to tell a real or imagined story in the past, present or future.

These purposes can be used by teachers  across ALL subjects - a design brief in Technology, an investigation in Science, a statistical analysis in Math, an essay in History, etc.

LISA gives teachers easy-to-use tools to help students' understanding of purpose and audience in their subject.
