Access the Rubrics tool through yourMy Rubricsarea to create Points-based and Qualitative Rubrics.
To navigate to your Rubrics area, hover over your avatar in the top-right corner of your PowerSchool Learning window. From the menu that appears, selectMy Rubrics.
This will take you to your Rubrics area, where you will see all of the Rubrics that you've created, organized intoActiveandDrafttabs.
You may not have any Rubrics yet, but no worries--we'll walk you through how to make one!
To create a new Rubric, simply click theAdd a Rubricbutton. In the pop-up, you'll be asked to choose whattypeof Rubric you'd like to create--Points-based or Qualitative. Select whichever you'd like, thenContinue.
Fill out the details for your Rubric--you'll need to give it at least a title, but can also add Grade Level/Subject and a description, as desired. When you're ready, clickContinue.
Now you'll see the area where you'll edit the contents of the Rubric. You can view more information about the Rubric by clickingDetails.
Use theAdd a CriterionandAdd a Levelbuttons to add additional Criteria and Levels to your Rubric. Edit Criteria titles and descriptions by clicking them and typing new text. You can do the same for Level titles--just click the placeholder text to edit!
Enter Level descriptions by clicking in each cell to reveal a text box.
You'll also need to give each Level a point value, depending on the type of Rubric you're creating (if you're working with a Qualitative Rubric you won't use point values!). Just click that little number you see in the Level header cell, and you can enter the desired value.
Another option you have with Points-Based Rubrics isWeighting.Click theEdit Weightsbutton to assign each Criterion a weight. By default, the weight will be distributed equally between the Criteria.
Once you're done setting up your Rubric, just make itActiveby going to Manage Rubric > Make Active, so that you can attach it to Gradable Items in your Classes. Or, if you're not finished creating it yet, you can always come back to it later--any changes you make will be automatically saved in your Drafts area. This will let you find the Rubric in your Drafts tab later for further editing.
**Note that once you make a Rubric Active, it can no longer be edited, so make sure that you've made all the desired changes before making that Rubric Active!
