IF THE CORRECT ASSESSMENT IS SHOWING FOR THE SLO YOU WANT TO SCORE, simply click either the Scorecard view icon or the Rubric view icon on the right.
Click either icon if you want to see which SLO the assessment is scoring.
IF YOU THINK OR KNOW THAT AN ASSESSMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN CREATED FOR THE SLO BUT ISN'T SHOWING, click Find Assessment.

IF YOU NEED TO ADD AN ASSESSMENT FOR AN UNSCORED SLO, click Add Assessment.
For Select the Assessment Type, LEAVE THE DEFAULT AT Individual Student Scorecard & Rubric. DO NOT CLICK COLLECTIVE STUDENT SCORE ENTRY.

Add an assessment name, description, then choose an assessment type.
DO NOT check the box for Make this assessment formative.
DO NOT click the link to Add Reflections Template. The LPC Reflections is set as the default.

Click Generate Rubric Template.
Attach the SLO to the rubric by clicking Link SLO.
Click your desired SLO on the left.
If it is OK with your discipline coordinator, you can change the "performance descriptors" in each level of the LPC Generic Rubric. Simply click in a level, delete the word(s) that is there, and type in your description of what students need to achieve to reach that level. Otherwise, leave the descriptors alone. If you chose to use a different scale, you will have to change the descriptors for each level.
You can ignore the part about DLA Mapping.
Click Save to save the assessment only for you and only in this section. Better yet, click Save and Add to Library of Shared Assessments to save the assessment for reuse in all other sections of the course in the current or future terms.
Make sure you are in the section and semester you want to score. If not, select the
semester from the drop-down list next to your name, and scroll to the section. To
the right of the assessment are two icons under the column called Scorecard, one for
the Scorecard view and one for the Rubric view. You can use either one. You can also
do part of the scoring in one, then switch to the other.
If you choose Scorecard view, you'll see the students on the left, followed by the SLO to score. Simply click one score for each student, then click Save and Continue to Reflection.
If you choose Rubric view, click the student on the left, then click the appropriate performance description. Click Save and Continue to Reflection.
