Ms. Sohn can make many changes to assessments in her Personal Library within the application. For example, she can:

  • Delete ratings to describe only two or three levels of performance
  • Add ratings to describe more than four levels of performance
  • Reorder ratings to go from low to high
  • Change rating levels from numbers to words such as Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Developing, and so forth
  • Change rating levels to points possible (create a scoring guide)
  • Add or delete traits or items
  • Modify descriptors to make them specific to a particular unit or project
  • Change the language to make the assessment appropriate for a different age group
  • Reorder traits (rows) or ratings (columns)
