Credit Assignment Overview
Create an assignment that gives either full credit or no credit as a score.
NOTE: Credit Assignments cannot be assigned to the Online Student Portal.
Example of Credit Assignment
Provide students with a set number of points for completing an assignment (i.e. if you write in your journal each day you will receive 2 points). The teacher walks around the room with their phone, iPad or tablet scanning the forms of the students who completed the assignment. In the example pictured here, the teacher used clear tape to attach the credit form to a student's assignment book so a score can be scanned for each assignment and then erased using dry erase markers for repeated use. The teacher is now able to scan the form, have immediate trackable date, and transfer scores to any electronic grade book.

What is a Credit form?
Credit forms are used when you would like to provide a predetermined amount of points for student work. It could include providing points for extra credit, completing a homework assignment, attendance, or even participation points. Credit forms only require a Student ID and can be used from one class to another pending the Student ID is the same in each class. This option allows for immediate scoring and grade transfer.
