We are releasing a major update to ForAllRubrics this Sunday, July 13th. This update will combine all of the capabilities of the current versions of both ForAllRubrics and ForAllBadges into one integrated Rubric & Badging platform. ForAllBadges will no longer exist as a separate product. Below is the overview of the integration.
We now support competency-based assessment with a choice of 3 types of scoring: Rubric, Checklist or Basic Badge.
No matter what form of scoring you choose, all assessment data collected can be viewed as an open digital badge.
While designing your assessments, you can choose to see an overview of all your assessments by viewing the badge images.
Or you can choose to view and manage the details of your assessments in list view.
While viewing your class, you can choose to see an overview of how your students are making progress towards reaching competency on all assessments.
Or you can choose to focus on one assessment, view details of each student’s performance and manage communication with students and their parents.
When a badge is issued, it signifies that a student has achieved competency according to the criteria described in the badge definition.
When a list is scored, each checked item signifies that the student has reached competency for that item. When all items are checked, the student has achieved competency and the corresponding badge is issued to the student.
When a rubric is scored, each score that is in a “green” rating signifies that the student has reached competency for that item. When all items are scored with “green” ratings, the student has achieved competency and the corresponding badge is issued to the student.
When students login, no matter what scoring method you have chosen, they first see a badge view that shows them their progress toward reaching competency. They can click on their badge to see the scoring details.
We hope you’re as excited about this new version of ForAllRubrics as we are! There are lots of other new features as well and we will be following up with more information on the details.
