5. Select the Display Mode for review of extended response rubric Item proficiency levels. The chosen interface will show during teacher grading review, or student self-review. Short response type questions will always display as checkmarks. Choose from one of three options:

  • Display Points or Percentage: This will show the given percentage, or point value of a given rubric proficiency level. This allows transparency for how overall grades are calculated.

  • Display Stars: Rubric proficiency levels are represented as stars. Grades are still calculated as a point value, percentage, or numeric.

  • Display Numeric Scores: Rubric proficiency values are always displayed in numeric whole number form (1, 2, 3, 4 etc.) regardless of the underlying value. Use this option to easily align to a numeric rubric.

To Preview the display mode, click "Preview as Student," and click "Preview as Reviewer."
