One of the particularly beneficial aspects of assessing with CTLS Assess is the ability to include Constructed Response items! Students have the opportunity to see and practice test items that mirror what they will see on required testing, and teachers have the opportunity to compile meaningful data gathered from a variety of item types.
As more and more teacher-created and Touchstone assessments are including CR items, you may find yourself needing a refresher on how to score those items within CTLS Assess.
Keep in mind that you can input student scores two different ways.
- By individual student (which comes in handy when students have taken the assessment using the iRespond Web App, and you need to see the students’ responses on the screen).
- By the class roster (which is useful when you’ve already scored students’ responses on paper, and simply need to input the points awarded).
In order to input student scores, you will navigate to the Results widget, click on the score icon, and select “Rubric Score Entry”.
