Spotlight Web App
Spotlight is a tool for teachers to store, organize and project student writing samples. Teachers can tag skills, mark-up writing samples, compare two samples, and focus on a single sample, to facilitate a classroom discussion. Spotlight automatically organizes samples by class and date, and provides the teachers the ability to either show off strong work and give credit to the student, or allows them to show samples as anonymous.
