D2L - Attaching a rubric to an assignment or grade (UW-Madison)
Rubrics can be attached to activity or grade item by clicking the Add Rubric button.
Grades can be directly reported to the gradebook through rubrics for these activities:
- Discussions (However, students will not be able to see the feedback. The rubric will only be a grading tool for the grader).
- Grades (any type, including text)
- Quiz, and Survey
Important: if the rubric does not appear, recall that it must be published be used for grading. An unpublished rubric can be edited under Edit Course > Rubrics.
Dropbox assignments include an option for the "Default Scoring Rubric." This sets the default rubric used to generate a score for each student, in case multiple rubrics are be used.
If the rubric is going to be used for grading (i.e. the rubric's score should be entered in the gradebook), the point value of the rubric and the grade item should match.
Note that the ePortfolio be accessed through a course Navbar link in order for available rubrics to be displayed.
