Criteria-based assessment involves using scoring guides – often referred to as rubrics – that are used to measure a student’s learning outcome. Enabling teachers to divide standardized learning objectives into smaller parts, the rubric, or scoring guide, is used to evaluate a student's learning based on a range of criteria – not just a single numerical score. If the assessment rubric is presented to the students before they start working on assignments, they are aware of the criteria on which their work will be assessed and can reflect as they go.
In itslearning, a teacher's own assessment criteria, or rubrics, can be added to learning objectives that has been imported to, or created in, a course. This is possible from the learning objectives page or when editing an assignment with learning objectives connected to it.
The learning objectives are then connected to assignments. When students are working with an assignment they can see the assessment criteria, and during scoring the teacher selects the assessment criteria that fits the submitted assignment with a single click of the mouse.
