Creating Rubrics, Categories, Standards, Scores

Available for Reflectivity team owner/admin

Rubrics with standards, categories, and scores may be applied to time-stamped comments. You can create your own rubrics or use one of our templates to start. To experience what other users see when they apply rubrics with categories, standards, and scores to their comments view our companion article here.

*Need help devising a Rubric/Standards? We have tons of experience working with teams that use rubrics for instructional coaching, teacher preparation, peer mentoring, and self-reflection. We even have sample Rubrics you can adapt for your program. Email us:

1. To create a Rubric, go to Admin Portal -> Settings -> Rubrics.

Click on Add new rubric. You will be given two options:
