ForAllRubrics How To: Student Journals


The student journal is the communication center for student accounts on ForAllRubrics.  When a student first logs in, she sees her journal.  In the example below, the top entry is a journal entry that was added by the student Lola about her experience presenting her project at the science fair.

When a teacher completes a rubric for a student, the results appear in the student’s journal.  Below you can see that the “Demo Teacher” assessed the student with the “Free Art” rubric.  The teacher’s comments that were entered while the scoring the rubric are displayed to the student.

When the student is viewing the information about the completed rubric, they can:

  • choose to see the details of the rubrics by clicking on “View Rubric Results,”
  • add their own comments and

If the student clicks on “View Rubric Results,” they are taken to a print view of the scored rubric where they have the option to either download the scored rubric as a pdf or send the scored rubric to a printer.
