Assessment Instruments

Last modified 14:18, 10 Sep 2013

This help page applies to Assessors and Administrators.


There are two types of assessment instruments: rubrics and scored checklists

Rubrics have distinct performance scoring levels, whereas scored checklists allow the assessor to enter a single score within an indicated range for each criterion.

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 Set sections in order to show how the Outcomes are being met through the course curriculum and to track student progress and learning. 

To access Assessment Instruments, use the Curriculum menu to select Assessment Instruments.


Special Applications

Met/Not Met Rubrics
The special case of dichotomous performance levels includes 'Met/Not Met', 'Present/Not Present', 'Pass/Fail' etc. These are not rubrics, but rather types of checklists.

Not Applicable Scoring Criteria
In some instances, it may be beneficial to use a special rubric application, such as an additional 'Not Applicable' performace level. These types of performance levels should not be added to the default performance levels, since they will not be used regularly and are not included in the assessment data calculations. 

Assessment Instruments with a 'Not Applicable' option are created by adding a level of performance to a rubric and setting this final level for each Citroen to have no score. The level description should be entered as something similar to "This criterion was not applicable at this time and therefore not assessed." Where this approach is applied the score for this criterion will be ignored in all calculations. Choose the 'No' option in the 'Include' category.
