How do I view the rubric for an assignment as an observer?
A rubric outlines the criteria an instructor uses to grade an assignment. Instructors may use different rubrics for different assignments, though not every assignment may include a rubric.
If an instructor includes a rubric as part of an assignment, you can view the rubric in the assignment details.
- Not all assignments may include a rubric.
- You can also view assignment rubrics in the Grades page and in the submission details page.
In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.
Click the name of an assignment.
Assignment rubrics display below the assignment instructions.
Rubrics include criteria , each with a set of ratings  and point values . A rubric criterion may include up to five different ratings.
Note: Depending on how the instructor set up the rubric, it may or may not include point values. If the rubric does not include point values the instructor may still use it to provide feedback on your assignment.
