When + (plus) assessments are added directly to the assessments gradebook, you have the option to link standards. If you are adding the assessment to the standards gradebook, you are required to link a standard.

First, you'll need to access the + assessment:

  • While in the Assigned section of your Assessments module, select the correct class, and locate the assessment. Select the ellipsis to the right of the assessment, then select Settings.

❓ You might be wondering why the + (plus) assessment is located in your Assigned assessments vs. your Draft assessments. Since + (plus) assessments are created directly in the gradebook, they are never actually in draft form. Any edits made to a + (plus) assessment are done through the Assigned assessments page.

Link a Standard

  • Step 1: While in the + (plus) assessment, select Link Standards.

  • Step 2: Choose a standards folder.

  • Step 3: Once you've located the desired standard(s), check the box next to it (you can add more than one at a time).

  • Step 4: Select Link Standards in the bottom right-hand corner.

Edit or Remove a Standard

➡️ Edit

  • Step 1: To remove the old standard, select the x next to the standard title in the assessment details.

➡️ If you wish to simply remove a standard and not replace it with another, you can stop here. Continue to Step 2 if you'd like to replace the standard.

  • Step 2: To add the new standard, follow the same steps as listed above in the Link a Standard section.


  • What if I've already assigned or graded the assessment? If I change a standard, does that update the gradebook? Yes. Changes to standards on a + (plus) assessment update in the graded assessment so the updated standard will show in the standards gradebook. You do not have to unassign/reassign the assessment.
