Before you can be an official scorer, you must score a set of responses using the rubric(s) and submit scores that consistently follow the given guidance. This proves that you have met the criteria to be a scorer. You can do this all at once, or score part of the set and stop, and then come back later. This may be useful if you decide you need to review the training or practice options before continuing.
To qualify as a scorer, follow these steps.
- From the main page, select the grade you want to qualify on, as described in Select a Grade.
