Grade Submissions Using Rubrics
If you have added a rubric to an assignment, you can assess the rubric in SpeedGrader.
Use Rubric for Grading
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.
Outcomes Extra Credit
If your rubric includes outcomes, you may be able to assign extra points for the outcome criterion if this feature is enabled for your course. Learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
- If your rubric does not contain any predetermined rubric criteria, you should grade the rubric using free-form comments.
- If your rubric does not contain any point values, you should grade the rubric as a non-scoring rubric.
