Creating a rubric or grading form during assignment creation

Rubric scorecards and grading forms help to evaluate student work, based on defined criteria and scales. They can either be created while making an assignment or after a student has made a submission. When creating an assignment, the optional online grading settings allow you to either attach an existing rubric or create a new rubric by launching the Rubric/Form Manager.

Once the Rubric/Form Manager has been launched, a random rubric from your libraries will be displayed.

To begin, select Create new rubric or Create new grading form from the menu located in the top left-hand corner.

Depending on the type of assignment, there are four grading tools to choose from.

  1. Ensure the % icon is selected in order to access the standard rubric template. This should automatically be selected as it is the default Rubric Scoring option.
  2. Enter a name for your rubric by selecting on Enter rubric name here in the top left of the Rubric and Form Manager. To save your title, select anywhere outside of the text field.
  3. To edit the name, description, or percentage value of a criterion, select directly onto the relevant field and begin typing. Press enter or select anywhere outside of the text field to finish editing.


    The criteria percentages combined must equal 100% as each criterion represents a percentage of the student’s overall grade.

    While you can assign decimal values to a rubric once applied to a grade the decimal will be rounded to the nearest whole number.

    1. To add extra scale columns select the + icon to the right of the Scale header.
    2. You can delete a scale column by hovering over it and selecting the trash can icon that appears above the scale header.
  5. To enter the description for each cell, select the cell, enter the description, and then select outside of the cell’s text field to finish editing the description.
  6. Once the rubric is complete, select the Save button at the bottom right of the Rubric and Form manager.
  7. Select the Close button to exit the Rubric and Form manager.
  8. Your newly created rubric will now appear in the list that appears within the online grading assignment settings.
