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:

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!

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