An organization can optionally provide specific descriptions for each level of the scale being used to assess the respective learning targets.
Adding these clarifies what is expected to demonstrate a particular level of a specific learning target and can help ensure learning targets are assessed by different people through the same criteria lens.
When an organization sets up and uses Headrush with respective product and process rubrics as learning targets, adding custom descriptors more precisely informs a learner of what is expected and reinforces the transferrable skill of discerning self-assessment.
Should you utilize Headrush's guest assessor feature, adding custom descriptors mitigates confusion and improves clarity of what is to be considered for those external audiences who may not have an everyday appreciation of assessing students.
How to setup customized scale descriptors per learning target?
Headrush accounts with the Admin role can add custom descriptors by editing individual learning targets -or- in bulk via the spreadsheet import of learning targets.
Add/Edit within the App via Admin
Add/Edit in Bulk via Spreadsheet
Admin accounts can bulk import learning target descriptors by importing a spreadsheet that includes columns to the right of the last group description. Each column represents the respective level of the associated assessment scale with that learning target set.
In the example below, notice columns I - L of the spreadsheet. The custom target scale descriptors would be populated in the respective column row combination for each target. If left empty, Headrush will keep empty for that given target.
