Editing an assessment's Target Judgement Rules

What are Target Judgement Rules?

Setting up Target Judgement rules allow you to colour code your mark sheets, depending on how you students are doing in their assessments relative to their targets.

By default, Arbor automatically calculates whether the student is working Significantly Below, Slightly Below, At or Above their current target. This gives you a clear visual indication of students that might benefit from an intervention.

You can set up as many Target Judgements as you need, and can change the names of your Target Judgements to align with the language you use at your school. For example, you might want to amend them to be called Emerging, Developing, Secure.

Default settings for Target Judgements

Judgement rules are initially set to be the same across all assessments. Significantly Below is between the lowest value on the scale and the midpoint of the lowest value and the target. Slightly Below is between the midpoint of the lowest value and the target and the target. 

They will cause the mark sheets to display four colours - orange, yellow, light green or dark green.

For example, if your assessment uses the new GCSE grade set and a student has a current target or 7, the thresholds are as shown below:

You can see the default Target Judgements in Students > Assessments > Assessment Framework > Targets > Target Judgement Rules > Target Judgements.

Your list will then be updated and you can use this new judgement with all of your assessments.

Adding Target Judgements Rules for each assessment

You can adjust the thresholds for each target judgement by going to Students > Assessments > Assessment Framework > Targets > Target Judgement Rules > Assessment Rules.

To see what target judgements have been set up for each assessment, select the assessment from the Assessment drop-down menu. You can add target judgement rules for any assessment that has been added to your Assessment framework. This means you only have to define these rules once for an assessment. They will apply to every academic year that the assessment has been added to the Assessment Policy for.

You can use the Bulk Update button to apply the same settings to all your assessments. 

Top Tip: Press your cmd + A keys to select all your assessments. You can then click any assessments to deselect them.

To set rules for an individual assessment, click the assessment, then on the next page click +Add.

This will then be reflected in the mark sheets and on report cards. For example, if a student is working at their target, Arbor will colour the cell light green and if they are working slightly below their target Arbor will colour the cell yellow.

The more target judgements you have set up, the more colour steps you will see between orange and green.
