What is WrAP?

The Writing Assessment Program (WrAP) stands apart from nearly every other available writing assessment. Unlike other instruments that provide only holistic scoring indices, the WrAP is scored analytically. Developed in collaboration with our member schools and Measurement, Inc., WrAP uses a six-trait, six-point rubric to provide information that can help target instruction in writing. Schools can test their students at five levels:

  • Elementary (Grades 3-4)
  • Intermediate (Grades 5-6)
  • Middle (Grades 7-8)
  • Secondary (Grades 9-10)
  • College Preparatory (Grades 11-12)

Features and Benefits of WrAP

WrAP provides unmatched results through:

  • Direct measure of student writing based on a standardized prompt provided by ERB.
  • Evaluation by two writing experts, including grammar and writing conventions.
  • Five levels of testing, with varying modes of discourse and scoring standards. These developmentally appropriate sequences align with classroom practice from Grades 3 through 12:
Elementary (Grades 3–4) Narrative
Intermediate (Grades 5–6) Informative/Descriptive
Middle (Grades 7– 8) Expository
Secondary (Grades 9–10) Persuasive
College Prep (Grades 11–12) Critical Thinking

  • Robust reports to schools to help assess the quality of student writing
  • Ability to compare students’ writing to similar-achieving students at similar schools both individually and as a whole
