Creating a Rubric

Grading rubrics are a simple way to set up grading criteria for assignments. Rubrics let you to define what is required for your students to achieve a particular grade on an assignment. Rubrics can be added to Assignments or Discussions, displayed to students, and used for convenient point-and-click grading.

Attach Existing Rubric to a Graded Discussion

You can add an existing rubric to your assignments (including discussions, written assignments, and quizzes). All of your rubrics can be accessed from your current course and across all the other courses in your account.
