How do I manage rubrics in a course?

As an instructor, you can create, edit, and delete rubrics in your course. Rubrics are used as grading criteria for students and can be added to assignments, quizzes, and graded discussions.

Notes:

  • Rubrics cannot be edited once they have been added to more than one assignment.
  • When you delete a rubric, any course assignment currently associated with the rubric will still have access to the rubric, but it will no longer be available for future assignments in the Rubrics list.
