Setting Up Skills

Team Kaizena -

Every day in class your teach your students new skills, but students often don't know how well they are doing with these skills until their final grades.  The Skills feature is a way for you to quickly rate your students in specific areas.

Skills can be rubric criteria, common core standards, your local state, region, or country’s standards, learning objectives or outcomes…anything you want to rate!

 

Before you can use a Skill in the Google Docs add-on, you'll need to create a Skill on your Skills page. 

Click the skill icon to get started:

Next, click "Manage Skills on app.kaizena.com":

This will take you to your Skills page.  You'll see a sample Skill (and any other Skills you've created).  

To create a new Skill, click "New Skill":new_skill_1.png

 

Enter the Skill title, the click "Create":

Next, click the Skill, then click "Edit Skill Levels":

Each skill starts with four dots (ie 5 levels, including level 0).  You can remove a level by clicking "Remove" next to any skill level you don't want.  You can add a level by moving your mouse in between two levels, and clicking the "New Level Here" button that appears:

Next, add your descriptions to each level - these will save automatically:

Once you've added your descriptions, you're all done!
