Introducing Rubrics on Chalkup

chalkup-rubricsWe are excited to announce our newest feature, Rubrics, an incredibly easy way to accurately assess and grade student assignments and projects.

Using a rubric provides several advantages to both instructors and students. Instructors are able to provide their students with a descriptive set of criteria designed to reflect the weighted importance of the objectives of the assignment. This gives students a strong understanding of the assignment expectations while making sure that the instructor’s grading standards don’t change over time.

We also added this feature as a response to our users who really wanted to simplify their Google Drive workflow. On Chalkup, students can now submit Google Drive files to their assignments, and Teachers can annotate and comment using our MarkUp annotator, and now they can grade using a Rubric.

Grade Assignments using Rubrics.

Grading using a Rubric on Chalkup is incredibly easy. When you're ready to grade, you just click on the standards that you feel the student earned, and we automatically calculate the grade. You can also choose to weight individual categories. Point values can be whatever you set on any scale and point range.

[Chalkup users: you can learn more about how to set up your rubrics in our support docs]
