If you added a rubric with your assignment and have selected the rubric to be used for grading, you can tap each rubric criterion to automatically apply points to the submission grade. The chosen criterion will be highlighted [1], and the grade will autopopulate with the score [2].

To leave a comment for the student about the criterion score, tap in the Add Comment field [3].

You may have to swipe your screen to view additional criterion in the rubric.

Note: If your rubric is not set to be applied for grading, you can still tap the points for each rubric criterion, but but you'll have to add the points manually and enter them in the grade field. To see if your rubric is set for grading, you can view the assignment settings.
