Creating Rubrics in Assignment Settings

Overview

 

Rubric scorecards can be used to evaluate student work based on defined criteria and scales. Grading forms can be used to provide free-form feedback and scores to evaluate student work based on defined criteria. The rubric scorecards can be created by the account administrator and shared to all instructors on an account. Instructors can also create and share rubric scorecards, allowing other instructors to upload the rubric scorecard to their classes.


There are three rubric scorecard types:

 

  • Standard rubric scorecards allow you to enter whole number scale values and criteria percentages. The maximum value for the Standard rubric will be the same as the highest scale value entered.

 

  • Custom rubric scorecards allow you to enter any value directly into the rubric cells. The maximum value for the Custom rubric will be the sum of the highest value entered in each of the criteria rows.

 

  • Qualitative rubric scorecards allow you to create a rubric that has no numeric scoring.
