File Structure
A row of tabs across the bottom of the tool provides access to each of the four components and associated areas addressed by the rubric. A dropdown menu appears by clicking on the evidence cell associated with each criterion/indicator.

Process for Implementation
The Online Rubric is designed as a collaborative team tool for assessing progress with implementation of the vision for customized teaching and learning. Team members identify and consider evidence addressing each indicator/ criterion. Based on team discussion to build shared understanding and consensus, each indicator is rated using the following scale:

Evidence demonstrates the criterion is met.
Evidence of this criterion is limited.
No evidence of this criterion is apparent.
There is not yet sufficient understanding and/or agreement to rate this criterion.

Based on the team ratings, the online tool produces a color-coded snapshot of each component of the rubric. The visual output informs and focuses team discussion about the status of implementation and suggests logical next steps for making more progress toward the vision. As a result, the Online Rubric is a powerful, evidence-based tool to support leaders with the process of ramping-in to customized teaching and learning productively and meaningfully.
