Since the 2014-2015 school year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has contracted with Measurement Incorporated to bring PEG Writing to thousands of students in grades 6-12. Through our contract with the TEA, PEG Writing is available to a select group of schools at no cost. In addition, the program is available at a reduced rate to all Texas schools, grades 3 through 12.

PEG Writing is the award-winning formative assessment and instructional writing support platform designed to help students achieve greater proficiency in writing across the curriculum. For a brief video introduction to PEG Writing, click here.

Through the program, selected Texas schools are able to use PEG Writing at no cost to:

  • Supply students with more practice, feedback, and tools to improve their writing skills
  • Increase writing evaluation efficiency and allow teachers more time to focus on strategies to enhance and differentiate instruction based on student needs
  • Help administrators monitor writing performance and improve writing instruction throughout the school
