How do I use a rubric to grade submissions in SpeedGrader?
If you have added a rubric to an assignment, you can view the rubric in SpeedGrader.
If you want to use the rubric to calculate a grade, be sure you have selected the Use this rubric for assignment grading checkbox when adding a rubric to an assignment. Make sure this checkbox is selected before you begin grading submissions.
If you do not select the rubric specifically for grading, you can still use the rubric to evaluate an assignment but the score will not update automatically.
Note: If you do not want to use predetermined rubric criterion, you can grade with free-form comments instead.
Open SpeedGrader from any assignment, graded discussion, or quiz.
