- On February 17, Horizon was enhanced to allow a student-friendly rubric to be used on a short answer question. When creating a short answer question, teachers can enter a rubric which will be available when scoring answers to the short answer question and a copy of the teacher rubric can be make to use as a student rubric. This can be used by students as they answer the questions to make sure they are including all of the necessary parts for their answers. Please be aware that all items continue to default to a value of one point when added to a test. This includes short answer items. Teachers may want to change the point value of these items within a test to correspond to the rubric scale.
