This content applies to Assessors and Administrators.
The Curriculum menu is available to both Assessors, and Administrators. This is where users can manage Assignments, Tables of Contents, Assessment Instruments, Outcome Sets, and Forms. To learn more, please review the summaries below, and visit the appropriate help pages.
Assignments are created by assessors and assigned to their own students by way of Course Groups. Unlike assignments and tasks created within program portfolios that are setup by local Chalk & Wire administrators, this type of assignment is created, attached to a program or course Table of Contents section, linked to a specific assessment instrument, and sent to students by the assessor themselves. When submitted, these assignments are automatically returned to the assessor for assessment.
To learn more, please visit the Assignments help page.
Tables of Contents
Tables of Contents act as an organizing structure within portfolios, which students select upon portfolio creation. Assessment Instruments and Outcomes can be linked to Tables of Contents to create meaningful data through assessments. Tables of Contents is the interface that connects students to the assessment system.
To learn more, please visit the Tables of Contents help page.
Assessment instruments are linked to Tables of Contents in order to allow for the submission and assessment of work. They are also linked to Outcome Sets in order to show how these Outcomes are being met through the course curriculum and to track student progress and learning.
To learn more, please visit the Assessment Instruments help page.
Chalk & Wire allows you to set up your system with as many Outcome Sets as you wish. Several national Outcome Sets are preloaded into the system. Chalk & Wire also allows for the addition of any additional types of Outcomes, including National, State, and Local Outcomes. To manage your standards, you can edit existing Outcomes, add new Outcomes, and/or link Outcomes to Assessment Instruments.
To learn more, please visit the Outcome Sets help page.
Use forms to create general surveys such as prior experience, attitude and opinion scales (strongly agree to strongly disagree), checklists (required documents, etc.) and to track field experiences. Forms are distributed at various locations in the application, depending upon the purpose and who is going to complete the form.
To learn more, please visit the Forms help page.
