This post will walk you through two ways to use ForAllRubrics to support our most requested feature, student self- and peer- assessment.
- With the teacher’s account on the ForAllRubrics Mobile App
- With the student’s account on the ForAllRubrics Website
Approach 1: With the teacher’s account on the ForAllRubrics Mobile App
Teachers can use their own teacher account to login into ForAllRubrics Offline on their iPads and pass the iPads out to the students to use. They can use their one account on multiple iPads. The students can use the rubric comments field to indicate who did the assessment. This works especially well, if you aren’t able to give students their own accounts.
Approach 2: With the student’s account on the ForAllRubrics Website
Another approach is to have the students do the self- or peer- assessments with their personal accounts. For an introduction to student accounts, see the post, “ForAllRubrics How To: Student Journals.” Below are the steps for enabling your rubrics for student self- and peer- assessment.
When you’re editing a rubric that you want student to access, make sure that you’re in advance mode and the rubric has the “Allow Students to Self/Peer Assess” checkbox selected. When you select the checkbox a default badge will be created. You can customize the badge, by clicking on the badge name next to “Assign Badge”.
To set up student user accounts go to the Admin/Manage Students page.
Create student accounts by setting their email addresses and assigning passwords.
Students can then login to ForAllRubrics using their accounts.
When the student logs in and goes to the “Classmate Badges” page, she sees all the students in her class (including themselves) and can choose who to assess.
Once the student selects who to assess, they will see the badges that are shared with them and they can choose which badge to assess for.
When the student chooses the badge to use the appropriate rubric will pop-up and she can enter her scores.
When the assessment is complete, the student can now see the badge they have issued.
When you login as the teacher, you will see the rubric that was assessed by the student.
You can click on the date the rubric was assessed to see the details of the assessment.
When the assessed student logs in to her account, she sees a journal entry with information about the rubric assessment.
When she clicks on “View Rubric Results,” she sees the details of the rubric scoring and can download the completed rubrics as a pdf file or print it.
