Create & Manage Your School's Standardized Set of Rubrics

In order to handle courses/subjects with standards-based scoring in SchoolFront we configure rubrics for the skills / standards / competencies being measured.

The rubric makes it so that, instead of entering a single score for each assessment/coursework in the course/subject, the teacher can enter a score in for each of the skills/standards/competencies.

We assume that the skills/standards/competencies measured at each grade level (1) are standardized in your school so that all students at the same level are measured against the same set of standards, and (2) that the standards measured change/evolve as the student progresses in grade-level.
