Configuring Rubrics & Options

Via Settings, Primary Years Programme

Via Settings > Primary Years > Rubrics & Options in the sidebar lets you create new rubrics & options, which are completed by teachers together with their term grades.

By clicking Add Rubric in the sidebar, you can define your rubric title. There are two types of rubrics & options:

1. Criteria: this is a set of criteria that teachers will select as a dropdown menu (e.g. Effort grades may be set using a range of 5 to 1 with 5 being excellent effort and 1 being the worst).

2. Custom field: this is a customizable field allowing teachers to enter in any type of text with a defined suffix (e.g. attendance in % terms).

After adding the title of the rubric and selecting the type, click Create Rubric.


By hovering over the rubric, you can edit the values and descriptors. After defining your rubric details, press Save Changes.

Once you have added your rubrics, they will be visible in the Gradebook, from the Submit Term Grades tab under Tasks, where teachers will be able to enter in values.

Enabling rubrics & options on your report cards is a two-step process.

First, navigate to Settings > Reports > Manage Templates > select PYP template > Overview tab and enable the Options & Rubrics by selecting from the dropdown. Click Save Changes.

Lastly, navigate to the Summary tab, tick the Options & Rubrics checkbox and select the rubric from the dropdown. Once complete, you will want to press Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen.
