Now Through The NYC Core Curriculum: MY Access!®

We are proud to offer the industry leading web-based instructional writing application to all 9th-Grade classrooms through The New York City Core Curriculum.

What Is MY Access!®?

MY Access!® is a comprehensive suite that brings superior artificial intelligence and linguistic technologies to the writing process. Students write to assignment prompts (from our extensive bank, or custom created by your educators) while receiving guided feedback along the way to improve the mechanics of writing. After submission, students view a comprehensive breakdown of their writing, allowing them to immediately begin the process of revision. Feedback is presented in over six languages, making the application perfect for ELL and ESL deployments. Teachers and administrators are provided an immediate picture of their student’s activities and development. Educators are given the tools to differentiate their instruction on a classroom or individual level.

Writing becomes a continuous process specifically tailored to foster collective success.
