  • Upload their solutions onto your LMS
  • Take a picture of their work and email it to you
  • Explain their solution on a video chat, if applicable

We have created a digital version of the Exemplars assessment rubric for you to upload onto your LMS or to share directly with students. You may also share our student rubric.

Teaching Exemplars Remotely

This online lesson was created by Exemplars enthusiast, Marissa Schlup, from Sioux Falls, SD using the free social learning tool Flipgrid. Her 4th-graders started using Exemplars in February. 

Marissa's approach is just one of the many ways that teachers can support students in using Exemplars at home. A similar lesson could be posted to any LMS with corresponding directions for how you prefer your students to respond. 

Thank you, Ms. Schlup, for sharing this with us. You are truly an inspiration!
