I would have them do an independent prompt as often as you can that ISNT one of the timed, school-mandated ones and then find time to individually conference with your students after they have written them... talk to each student for several minutes about his or her body of work and what he or she can do to improve. This way, it isn't advice given whole-group which may or may not stick. Also, assign these individual improvements to your students. If one student is working on more descriptive word choice and another is working on more organized thoughts, that's fine! Then, come back and check the improved piece, see if they followed the advice you gave. I also attended a writing workshop PD day recently where they emphasized having the students learn about rubrics, and use one on their own writing and discuss why they gave themselves the scores they did on various facets of their writing... its all about accountability.

Hopefully some of that might help
