At Otus, we want our users to be able to quickly capture as many points of student performance as possible. The + Assessment feature allows teachers to quickly data for assessments you’ve given outside of Otus (observation, exit, slip, etc.. ) and connect to a standard. 

Here is a link to a video that will walk you through the process, or read below for step by step instructions.

Adding a + Assessment to your Points Gradebook

You can add a + Assessment to your Points Gradebook by selecting Gradebook from the left-hand navigation menu.

From here, choose the appropriate class from the center drop-down menu and then click on the + icon located in the upper right hand corner of the gradebook table.

A pop-up will prompt you to enter the Assessment Title, Type, Total Points, Link to Standard (optional), and Submission Date.

Select Save.

Adding a + Assessment to your Standards Gradebook

You can add a + Assessment to your Gradebook by selecting Gradebook from the left-hand navigation menu.

From here, choose the appropriate class from the center drop-down menu, click on the Standards tab to navigate to your standards gradebook, and then click on the + icon located in the upper right hand corner of the gradebook table.
A pop-up will prompt you to enter the Assessment Title, Type, Grading Scale, Link to Standard (required for a standards based + Assessment), and Submission Date.
