Every Rubric-Based assessment will require at least one rubric descriptor. You may add as many descriptors as you need. You may also link one standards each descriptor. This will provide you with the ability to view student progress each time they are assessed on the standard. ***Please note: This assessment will not appear in the the Standards Gradebook if a standard is not linked to each descriptor.
Rubric Based Assessments allow users to attach assessment related materials, including resources from Google Drive or One Drive, for students to access while taking the assessment.
To do so, select the paper clip icon and choose the desired attachment.
If attaching from your Google Drive, you have the option to allow students to:
- View only
- Edit the file collectively as a class
- Make an individual copy for each student
Testing Information for Students
Students can access materials you have shared by clicking View Attachments. They can also view the assessment's rubric by clicking View Rubric.
Students must click Attach and upload their work before submitting for a grade. They also have the ability to Save & Exit if they would like to continue the assessment at a later time. Once completed, students must click Submit.
