Show Student Work
Assessments can be created that require students to show their work and scored with a rubric. Show Student Work assessments can be created for any grade level or subject area with questions tied to learning expectations. Show Your Work assessments also includes essay questions where the student is given a prompt to write to, then scored with a rubric.
The Partners4Results Assessment module supports one-to-one assessments where a teacher administers the assessment to a student. The one-to-one assessments are perfect for Pre-K, Kindergarten, or ELL students. In the example to the left, this assessment is administered three times a year. The example is a sample from the second administration. As an option, skills mastered in the previous administration can be pre-filled so the teacher does not have to re-test the skill.
“I just wanted to say “thank you” for working so closely with P4R and asking if they can add certain features for Kindergarten. I LOVE that the bubble sheets are prefilled with the areas they know! This is a huge time saver and didn’t realize it until doing it.”
