Scoring Guides

What is the difference between a Scoring Guide Template and a Published Scoring Guide?

A Scoring Guide Template is what will be built to assess student portfolios.  When this Scoring Guide is used to score an evaluation, a published version of the Scoring Guide is created.  This allows for revisions to an existing Scoring Guide to take place in a way that will not affect any data previously collected.  One Scoring Guide Template can have several versions of a Published Scoring Guide, this allows the institution to use old versions of a Scoring Guide to conduct evaluations even after revisions have been made.  

The real importance is preservation of data.  You will be able to run a scoring guide report for any published version of any scoring guide.
