We’ve released some exciting new features:
- New WELCOME Page
- Improved MY CLASS Page
- Teacher control for when scored rubrics are published to students
- Better support for activities
New Welcome Page
We have been working hard to provide more documentation and help for teachers using ForAllRubrics. As part of these efforts, we created a new Welcome Page.
Improved MY CLASS Page
Now, if “All Results” is selected then the MY CLASS page shows all the scores for the selected rubric:
If “Most Recent” is selected then the MY CLASS page shows only the most recent score for each student (as before):
The labeled features are:
A. The school year you are currently working with. If you have used ForAllRubrics for more than one year, you can access previous years rubrics and scores.
B. The classroom you are currently working with.
C. The rubric you are currently working with.
D. In the header of the table, a selection box for selecting the most recent rubric for all the students at once. Once the students are selected you can “Email”, “Print”, or “Publish” their scored rubrics with a click of a button. Also in the header are arrows for sorting by last name, activity, percent score, number of items scored and who did the scoring.
E. A selection box for individual students.
F. An orange “plus” icon to begin scoring the rubric for that student.
G. The activity for the rubric (if one is selected) and the date of the most recent assessment for the student. If you click on the date, you can see the detailed scored rubric.
H. The student’s score on the rubric. Any items that weren’t scored will be considered “N/A, not applicable” and won’t be included in the total possible points.
I. The computed percentage on the rubric. Any items that weren’t scored will be considered “N/A, not applicable” and won’t be included in the computation of the percentage.
J. How many of the items were scored. If all the items were scored, a “check”.
K. Who scored the rubric (Teacher, the student for themselves or a peer)
L. An icon to publish the scored rubric with the student. Until you publish the scored rubric, the information will not be available to the student. If the scored rubric is published, you can click on the icon again to unpublish it and make it unavailable to the student.
M. An icon to print the completed rubric.
N. An icon to email the complete rubric to the emails associated with the student’s account (specified on the Admin/Manage Students page).
O. An icon to access the student’s journal.
P. An icon to delete the most recent completed rubric.
More support for activities
Now, if an activity is selected on the MY CLASS page, then only scored rubrics that are associated with that activity will be displayed.
When you are scoring a rubric, you will now be able to choose from the activities you’ve specified before or create a new activity.
We hope you find these new features make ForAllRubrics more useful in your classroom. Please keep the feedback coming!
