eLumen Instructions: Faculty

 

Logging In

If you are logging into eLumen for the first time, access the site at https://laspositas.elumenapp.com using Chrome (Chrome is the preferred browser for eLumen), and click Forgot Password. Enter your username, which is the first letter of your first name, followed by your last name (example: gwashington). Enter your college email address, then click Request. Check your college email account, and follow the instructions to log in.

Adding an Assessment

  1. Upon logging in, eLumen should default to the current section(s) you are teaching. If it doesn't, choose the current term in the drop-down next to Courses. Also, if you happen to have multiple roles in eLumen (Coordinator and Faculty, for example), choose Faculty from the drop-down next to your name if it isn't already selected.

    Choose Faculty and your program.

  2. 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.

For Select the Assessment Type, LEAVE THE DEFAULT AT Individual Student Scorecard & Rubric. DO NOT CLICK COLLECTIVE STUDENT SCORE ENTRY. We are mandated by accreditation guidelines to report scores by demographics, and this can only be done by scoring students one at a time (Individual Student Scorecard & Rubric). We cannot meet this requirement by aggregating scoring by the class as a whole (Collective Student Scoring Entry).

Click the link to Add Reflections Template. Click LPC Reflections. You'll see a preview of what you'll need to address. Click Add.

Make sure Outcomes-Oriented is chosen for Rubric Type.

You can leave both Scorecard View and Rubric View checked.

Unless you will be scoring multiple SLOs with the same assessment, you can leave the Number of SLOs field at 1.

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.
