This lesson shows how to create a rubric in the Manage Rubrics page. You can also create a rubric directly when adding a rubric to an assignment, and the process is the same.
Step 1: Open Outcomes
Go to the course where you would like to add a rubric and click on Outcomes..
Step 2: Manage Rubrics
Click on the symbol, then Manage Rubrics.
Step 3: Add Rubric
Click on the +Add Rubric button.
Step 4: Create Title
Create a title for the rubric. Typically this name includes keywords to associate it with an assignment, graded discussion, or quiz.
Step 5: Edit Criterion Description
The rubric includes one default criterion entry. To add a short criterion description, hover your mouse over the criterion and click the Edit icon.
To add a longer description to the criterion, click the view longer description link. The longer description helps students understand more information about the criterion. The long description does not display directly in the rubric but can be accessed by all users. To add a long description, enter a description for the criterion, then click the Update Description button.
Step 6: Split Ratings
Rubric ratings default to 5 points, awarding 5 points for full rubric marks and 0 points for no rubric marks. To split a rubric rating, hover over a rating and click the double-ended arrow. Split cells on the row as often as necessary to create the desired number of ratings.
Step 7: Add Ratings
You can also add ratings in incremental point values by hovering over a rating and clicking the Add Rating icon. The rubric will create a new rating to the right showing a whole-number point value between the existing ratings.
Step 8: Edit Rating
For each rating, you can edit the rating description and the number of points assigned to the rating. To edit a rating, hover over the rating and click the Edit icon. To edit the name of the rating, enter a new name in the text field.
To enter a new point value for the rating, enter the point value in the points field. Points can be whole (1, 5, 10) or decimal (0.3, 0.5, 2.75) numbers. Editing a specific rating value affects the full point value for the criterion. If you adjust the point value of a rating, the value of all ratings will adjust and create the updated point value for the criterion. Click the OK button.
Step 9: Edit Criterion Point Value
If you want to adjust the total point value of the criterion, enter the number of points in the Points field. The first rating (full marks) assuming the overall point value and any incremental ratings adjust appropriately. However, you can always go back and edit specific ratings if you don't want to accept the automatic adjustments.
Step 10: Delete Criterion
To delete the entire criterion, click the remove icon.
Step 11: Add Criterion
To create a new criterion for the rubric, click the Add Criterion link . To find an existing course- or account-level outcome to align with the rubric, click the Find Outcome link .
Step 12: Create Rubric
Click the Create Rubric button.
Step 13: View Rubric
View the new rubric. To edit the rubric, click the Edit icon . To delete the rubric, click the Delete icon .
