This collection of resources provides teachers with an understanding of how to create and use holistic and analytic rubrics and proficiency scales. The tutorials featured in this collection come from Capella University's Free PD for Digital Educators program and uses the Sophia platform to deliver learning around this competency.

    Proficiency Scales

    Capella University says:
    Proficiency scales are slightly different from rubrics - they delineate the sub-skills that make up a single competency so that you can easily evaluate each student's proficiency level. This informs future instruction and grouping for learning. In this video tutorial, you will learn how to create your own proficiency scale for a given competency.
