You have two mechanisms for scoring Applied Reading & Writing lessons. This article explains the "Rubric Score" mechanism, but there is also a "Quick Score". Please refer to Quick vs. Rubric score to see the differences.
- From Your Classes on your Teacher Dashboard, select “Assignments” for your desired section to grade.
- Select “Needs Grading” for completed assignments. Student names will appear if work has been submitted.
- Select score to see item analysis of multiple-choice performance.
- To return feedback and comments without a grade, select “Submit with No Score” and “Submit.”
- To return to the student for revision, select "Return for Revision."
Applied Lesson Grading Breakdown
For ThinkCERCA subscribing schools, several lessons capture student writing that can be graded and is stored in each individual student's College and Career Portfolio.
1. To view which papers need grading, select the Assignments tab on your class roster page and select any student assignment that "Needs Grading."
2. Once you enter a student's assignment for grading, you can View Student's Full Work (all steps of the assignment):
Make notes on their formal writing step (highlight text and make a note):
Provide feedback from CCSS-aligned rubrics with grades, comments, and additional comments:
Select "No Score" to turn it into a formative assessment (grades are therefore not averaged into the student data):
After providing comments on the paper, mark a specific area of growth focus. The Growth Focus tool can be used as a way for teachers to collaborate around personalizing instruction and zeroing in on areas of growth for individual students. In the Class& Student Data reports, you can then easily see which students are working toward certian areas of growth focus.
