Holistic - The rater gives one overall rating of performance on the item/section/test. There may be multiple performance criteria to consider; however, only one overall rating is given for the entire performance.

  • The rater is only given one set radio button to select for the entire rubric.
  • Raters have the ability to attached predefined comments

Scored - The rubric applies a percentage (of the available points) to the item based on the level achieved.

  • Total Item Points x Rating Weight = Points Earned
