The information page contains your school name and a list of all the teachers who have used the program. These are stored in the program and only need be entered the first time. This screen is also where you will provide a name and description for your new rubric.
At the bottom of your screen, you will choose the grade level and course before continuing to the next screen.
This screen will list all of the general and specific expectations for your chosen course taken directly from the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum. Double click or use the arrows to add or remove expectations.
You also have the ability to search for and choose expectations from other courses. This is very useful on those occasions when you will have inter-disciplinary assignments.
On this screen you will select the criteria that will be used in the assessment. To make it easier to find the desired criteria you can limit the list by task or category. You will probably also want to limit the criteria to those which are relevant to your chosen expectations.
Select criteria by dragging the text into one of four categories boxes: Knowledge, Thinking, Communication or Application. You can also click on the arrow to have the criteria added to the most appropriate box.
This screen will also allow you to create your own criteria and level descriptors for this rubric.
This screen allows you to view and edit the rubric before it is printed. You may double-click on any of the squares to begin editing the text it contains. You may add custom criteria at this stage as well.
This is the screen which will allow you to have complete control over how the rubric is worded. All of the criteria and the level descriptors are completely editable to ensure that you get the exact wording that is right for your rubric.
