Configuring Rubrics & Options

Via Settings > Middle Years Programme > Rubrics & Options

Via Settings > Middle Years Programme > Rubrics & Options, you can create new rubrics and options, which are completed by teachers together with term grades.

Click Add Rubric to create a new rubric.

Frist, define your rubric title. Then select the rubric type.

There are three types of rubrics and options:

  1. Criteria: This is a set of criteria that teachers will select from a dropdown menu (e.g. Effort grades may be set on a 1-5 scale, with 5 representing excellent effort and 1 the worst).
  2. Custom Field: This is a customizable field allowing teachers to enter any type of text with a defined suffix (e.g. attendance in % terms).
  3. Formula: This allows you to include the SUM or AVG (average) of the other rubrics you have created. Note that this only applies to Criteria rubrics that are numerical.

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

By hovering over the rubric title, you can edit the Value and Descriptor. After defining your rubric details, click Save Changes.

Once you have added your rubrics, they will be visible via Gradebook > Term Grades, and teachers will be able to select from a dropdown menu or enter their marks.

Enabling Rubrics & Options on your report cards is a two-step process:

1. Via Reports > Manage Templates > select MYP template > Overview tab, enable the Rubrics & Options by selecting from the dropdown. Click Save Changes.

2. Via Reports > Manage Templates > select MYP template > Summary tab, tick the Rubrics & Options checkbox and select from the dropdown. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
