Create and attach a Rubric


1. Introduction

You can use a Rubric to evaluate student work based on defined criteria and scales. There are three types of rubric:

  • Standard Rubric: enter scale values and criteria percentages.
  • Custom Rubric: enter any value directly into the rubric cells.
  • Qualitative Rubric: allows you to create a rubric that has no numeric scoring. These are primarily used to provide feedback in formative assignments.

You can also share Rubrics with other instructors. For more information about this, see our guide to importing and exporting Rubrics.
