Assessing Student Work - "No-Doc" Assignment
Before you can assess student work, you must first have created a Rubric and associated it to a course Assignment. If you have not created a Rubric yet and/or attached one to a Course Assignment, please follow the respective Walkthrough Guides found here.
In Waypoint 2, assessors are able to see how many student documents are ungraded, graded, and returned for each Assignment. Each of the course's Assignments are listed on the Engage page. If the Assignment does not require a document submission, the "Begin Grading" button will not be available and the assessor must use the "Show Roster" button to select a "Grade" button for a particular student.
|This video will show you how to assess student work using only the rubric.|
Using the Rubric
After clicking on a "Grade" button from the "Show Roster" list, Waypoint 2 will load the Rubric associated with the Assignment. The Rubric will appear on the left side of the screen with its criteria open in display.
- Select a performance level under "Observations" to mark a score for a particular criterion.
- The performance levels, by default, indicate the highest (top) to lowest (bottom) scores a student can receive for a given criterion.
- If the rubric was created with the "Rubric completion required" checkbox selected, each criterion must be scored in order for the grade to be finalized and returned to the student.
- Clicking "Save" will update the rubric with your changes.
- This feedback text is what displays on the student's feedback report once the assessment has been sent back to them.
- After changing the criterion score, clicking "save" will finalize the change.
Some rubrics also contain Additional Feedback criterion. This type of criteria is not worth any points, therefore selecting them does not impact the overall Assignment score. This feedback is simply additional text you can provide to the student upon returning their work.
You will continue marking scores and modifying any necessary feedback text for each criterion before reaching the end of the rubric. The last step is to add optional text summarizing your feedback for the Assignment.
