Step 1: Begin the Assessment Creation

  • Select Assessments from the left
  • Select Create Assessment
  • Select the Rubric assessment option.
  • Enter the Assessment Name, Assessment Type, and desired Grading Scale. 


Step 2: Add Descriptors

A rubric assessment will need to have at least one descriptor.

  • Enter a descriptor title (200 character limit)
  • Enter the description of the descriptor (1000 character limit)
  • Link a standard (optional) - the language of the linked standard will automatically generate as part of the description. Deleting the language of the standard will not unlink the standard!
  • Determine point values for each descriptor (if you are using a standards-based grading scale, this step is not needed, as the performance level titles will automatically generate)
  • Enter the descriptions of each performance level. (500 character limit)
  • Repeat the process with any remaining descriptors you with to add by clicking Add Descriptor

HINT - want to "duplicate" the descriptors to save time? Use the Descriptor Bank!

Descriptor Bank:

Each time you create a Descriptor, it will be added to your descriptor bank. When adding the Descriptor Title, you can type the first 3 letters of the descriptor to find ones that you have already created, starting with those 3 letters!
