Export Course Assessments – Understanding RL and RS fields
Each row in the export contains columns marked with RL, RS and a number. This is the representation of the collected assessment data. RL is an abbreviation for “Row Level” and represents the rows of a rubric. RL1 is the first row in the rubric, RL2 is the second row, and so on. The number in this field is the position of the selected performance level column. A “1” in this field would indicate that the assessor selected the left-most column of the rubric for an element, a “2” would indicate the next column to the right was selected and so on. The numbers in the RL fields do NOT represent performance level point values or reflect element weighting.

Note: The number of RL columns containing values will depend on the length of the longest rubric in the ExhibitCenter™. Therefore, for shorter rubrics, some RL fields may be empty.

A sample line from the export appears below.

This is visually represented in the following diagram:

RS is an abbreviation for “Row Score” and represents the weighted score the assessee received based on the point value associated with each performance level and the weight value of each row in the rubric. It is calculated by multiplying the point value of the selected performance level by the weight value of that row. A sample of the same line in the report, which was used in the previous example, is displayed below.

In this example, the rows contain weights of 2, 4, 2, 1, and 1 respectively. The columns contain a score of 3, 2, 1, and 0. Multiplying the selected column by the weight value of that particular row (not the percentage value) produces the scores that appear in the table above.

The following diagram shows how this relates to the original rubric.

Note: The number of RS columns containing values will depend on the length of the longest rubric in the ExhibitCenter™. Therefore, for shorter rubrics, some RS fields may be empty.
