Skills can be rubric criteria, common core standards, your local state, region, or country’s standards, learning objectives or outcomes…anything you want to rate!

Before you can use a Skill in the Google Docs add-on, you'll need to create a Skill on your Skills page.

Click the skill icon to get started:

Next, click "Manage Skills on dashboard":

This will take you to your Skills page. You'll see a list of your skills.

To create a new Skill, click "New Skill":


Enter the Skill title, then click "Create":


Each skill starts with four dots (i.e. 5 levels including level 0). You can add a level by clicking “Add level” in between any of the existing levels. You can remove a level by clicking “Remove” next to any skill level you don’t want: 

Next, add your descriptions to each level – remember to click “Save” to save your descriptions!

Once you've added your descriptions, you're all done!

See how to use your Skills in Google Docs.

You can also group skills together into rubrics - this guide has more details.
