Organize and display evaluation criteria.
The rubric tool allows faculty to organize and display evaluation criteria. Rubrics are made up of rows that contain criteria, and columns that correspond to the level of achievement expressed for each criterion. Descriptions and point values for each cell in the rubric help define evaluations and scores.
The same rubric to be used across multiple items with different possible points.
Rubrics can be associated with gradable content. (blogs, journals, wikis, discussion boards, assignments and short-answer, file-response, or essay questions in tests and pools). When adding an interactive tool, the option to associate a rubric will appear after selecting the Grade option.
By default rubrics are not shared with students. Instructors decide whether to share rubrics with students at the time the rubric is associated. Feedback can be typed for each criteria as well as the entire assessment.
To share rubrics between courses, use the rubric import and export features.
