Configuring PBL Assessment

Customize PBL Term Rubrics

Term Rubrics can be added via Settings > PBL > Assessment. The three rubric types available are mark bands, criteria, and custom. The values added will appear in a dropdown and teachers will be able to select a value to represent the student's achieved value. The descriptors will be displayed in the right navigational menu next to the corresponding value to provide teachers with evaluation guidance.

Term Rubrics are assessed on a term basis, whereas project rubrics are assessed once per project. At the moment, the PBL term rubrics will not be displayed on term report cards as they do for DP and MYP students. This functionality will be available before the winter report card season (end of 2018).

Submitting Term Grades

In the Year Group, select a project and click Submit Term Grades from the right navigational menu to access the term gradebook for your project.

Customize Project Assessment Rubrics

Project rubrics allow you to create a set of rubrics that are to be used to assess the students' performance. The order of the rubrics in the settings will be preserved on the Assessment tab in the Year Group. Mark Bands allow for a singular descriptor to be applied to a range of points. After teachers assess mark band rubrics the total points achieved will be displayed in the last row.
