What is DocsPlus?

Help struggling writers overcome barriers to progress with DocsPlus, our award-winning writing tool for secondary schools. Use for day-to-day
lesson support and in place of human scribes/readers in exams if students qualify for additional access arrangements.

Create structured writing - Intelligent word prediction, writing frames and curriculum vocabulary banks enable students to demonstrate their knowledge and achieve writing success.

Organise ideas and plan writing tasks - Organising ideas is a vital first step in the writing process, and one that many students struggle with. DocsPlus includes some fantastic resources to help learners prepare for writing, including mind mapping and audio note tools.

Proof and review work - Realistic speech feedback enables learners to listen back to their work and encourages them to proactively find and correct errors for themselves.

Assess student progress - DocsPlus Analytics gives a unique insight into each learner’s writing process, helping educators make informed decisions about current support levels and the most effective next steps.

Access curriculum content - The integrated Document Reader will read aloud any PDF or Word document, providing equal access to worksheets, exam papers and more.

Provide access to exams - Students who qualify for additional access arrangements in exams can use DocsPlus instead of a human scribe or reader – it’s better for self-esteem and saves time and money. It's also a great choice for students who require general word processing support in their exams.

Support students with dyslexia - DocsPlus will help students with dyslexia to overcome writing frustration, independently access curriculum
content, and become more confident and successful learners.

Address a variety of learning needs - In addition to extensive support for learners with reading and writing difficulties, DocsPlus opens the door for students with a wide range of additional needs, including switch and eye gaze users.

Flexible licensing – use across Windows, Mac, iPad and Chromebook devices. Our Flexi-License also includes unlimited home access for students and teachers.
