Scoring rubrics with category and criteria weights

rubric_scoring  

iSocrates allows you to set weights for each rubric category and criterion. You can enter either percentages or points. If you prefer to work with points, iSocrates will calculate the percentages for you and display them in blue next to each category weight.

After entering category and criteria weights, you can select one of 3 scoring methods:

  1. Manual scoring: iSocrates will not add up the points from each evaluation scale pull-down menu, and will leave it up to you to determine a grade.
  2. Suggested scoring: iSocrates will add up the points from each evaluation scale pull-down menu, apply the weights, and provide a suggested grade that you can override.
  3. Automatic scoring: iSocrates will add up the points from each evaluation scale pull-down menu, apply the weights, and automatically provide a grade.
