Create Rubrics

Create your rubrics (scoring levels/rules), including point values and descriptors

Tag rubrics to items

When authoring items, simply assign the rubrics you want to use

Set Essay Scoring Rules

Require multiple markers, adjudication of disagreements, and visibility limitations? Users can be specified to see only THEIR students, or have the entire population anonymized and randomized. Configure as you need.
