Schoology: Grading and Assessment

Regardless of what capacity in which you use Schoology, one common element is that it makes learning experiences simpler for teachers, students and parents to engage in as a community. So whether you wish to use Schoology primarily as a portal to communicate with Parents and distribute newsletters (early ES), going right through to having Schoology as a central organising principle behind the courses that you teach (MS/HS) - we believe this session will serve you well as we expand to a broader adoption of Schoology in 2014-15.

1. Grading

  • You can grade student work either by inputting your assessment scores directly into the Gradebook, or by using a Rubric, which auto-calculates and records for you. This Gradebook can be exported as a spreadsheet too.
  • Grade Scales are available to use (currently), which mirror the grade scales in PowerSchool (both the default A-F; and AP Scale)
  • Grading can take the form of Badges to 'gamify' learning and recognise achievement. This is being used in particular in the ES, and once created, can be shared.
2. Assessment

  • Assignment setup and distribution to a single class or multiple classes (in 1 click)
  • Pre-load assignment with a scheduled 'go-live' date and time
  • Create 'Grading Groups' for differentiated assessment or learning experiences (such as Discussions).
