Applying a Rubric in Grade Center

A RUBRIC is a tool that lists evaluation criteria for an assignment. Rubrics can help instructors and TAs explain their evaluations to students. Rubrics can be viewed as a grading widget in Blogs, Journals, Wikis, and Discussion Boards. Instructors have the option to display Rubrics to students.

Instructors or TAs can also associate the Rubric to a grading column in the Grade Center and view the Rubric while assigning a grade. Rubrics can also be viewed from the Grade Details page within the Grade Center.
