About this Learning Opportunity

On-demand writing: a situation in which students are presented with a prompt (question or scenario) and are given a specific time limit to complete it. What is on-demand assessment in education? That's what on-demand writing is—writing that is ready right away. The best way to prepare to write on demand is to write regularly, develop fluency (the ability to write rapidly), and learn a variety of strategies and techniques. In short, students who make writing a habit of mind will do well when asked to write "right away”.

Participants will understand the skill set needed for students to be successful in an on-demand writing situation.
