Rubric: Create Rubric
A Rubric is a tool that lists evaluation criteria for an assignment. Rubrics can help learners organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to explain their evaluations to learners.
Rubrics are made up of rows and columns, with new rubrics defaulting to three rows and three columns. The rows correspond to the various criteria of an assignment. The columns correspond to the level of achievement expressed for each criterion. A description and point value for each cell in the rubric defines the evaluation and score of an assignment. There is no limit to the number of Rubrics that can be created.
From the Grade Center, rubrics can be associated to any column. Rubrics can be viewed from the Grade Center during the grading process. However, rubrics are not displayed to learners. As an instructor, your interaction is limited to a read-only copy when viewing the rubric in the Grade Center or within a grading widget for blogs, journals, wikis, and discussion forums. For details on associating a rubric to a grade column, see article How do I apply a grading rubric to an assignment? in this knowledge base.
