Naiku Quick Tip: Scoring Performance Assessments

Did you know that you can score performance assessments in Naiku? 


Quick Tip: Students don’t actually have to take a test in Naiku to receive scores in Naiku. For example, if you’re teaching first-grade students to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s, you can give them a performance assessment (i.e., actually ask them to count for you) and then score their performance in Naiku. See the example below.


1. Create your test in Naiku. Here, I have a three-question test. All questions have been aligned to MN state math standard (which includes skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s).


2. Ask each student to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s. Click on Close and Score to assign scores for each student. Click OK when you get the notification that students can’t submit their answers after this.


3. Next, you’ll see the scoring page. Note that you can score (process) by Students or by Items. In the screenshot below, I’ve chosen to score by Students and I’ve selected Edward Lowe. Based on how Edward counts for me, I can give him a point or not for counting by 2s (since it is easier to learn to count by 2s, I made that a 1-point question), and I can give him 0, 1, or 2 points for counting by 5s and by 10s (I made those 2-point questions). After scoring all students and items, click on Finish Scoring.
