What is Spotlight?

 

Spotlight is a free system in Revision Assistant that teachers can use along with our Signal Checks system.  An assignment in Spotlight (called a Spot Check assignment) is a great way for teachers to get a quick snapshot of their students' writing skills at various points throughout the year.  On a Spot Check assignment, students write to a prompt without the help of Signal Checks. When the assignment is complete, only teachers can see their students' automatic, numerical scores, which are based on our genre- and grade-specific rubrics.  Spot Checks help teachers determine which skills students have mastered and which ones need a little practice.
