Note: This document references views and actions that are only available to Echo Administrators

The schools in the New Tech Network have committed to the idea that content mastery alone is not enough to prepare our students for the future they will face.  Critical skills like critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and personal agency are important for all students to develop so that they can face the challenges of an increasingly complex and rapidly changing world.

Add scoring categories

You can add, edit or delete domain-wide scoring categories for Multi-Outcome Scoring.

New Tech Network has adopted a set of broad school-wide outcomes that are taught and assessed to varying degrees in:

  • Knowledge and Thinking
  • Written Communication
  • Oral Communication
  • Agency
  • Collaboration

If you need to edit or add different items follow the steps below

From the Domain Tool bar select Settings (Three Dot's) on the right side page

Add scoring categories
  1. Select Course Options
  2. Scroll down to Scoring Objectives ( NTN uses the word categories).
  3. Click Edit to add new and/or edit existing Scoring Categories ( Objectives).

Click New to create a new Scoring Objective

Provide:

  • Name
  • Description
  • Default Color
  • Click Save
  • Check for your added category
  • Click Save

Your new multi-outcome scoring category is now available in your domain
