Sakai 21 - Rubrics: How do I add a rubric to my site?


How do I add a rubric to my site?

Important: The max point value for an activity that you want to grade with a rubric should match the point value for that rubric. A rubric’s point value is the sum of the max point value for each criterion in that rubric. If you grade an activity with a rubric whose point value does not match the max point value for that activity, then students’ point scores may be arbitrarily distorted.

Go to the Rubrics tool.

Select the Rubrics tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Select Add Rubric.

Enter a Rubric Title.

Edit the existing criteria.

Select Edit Criterion to rename the default criteria.

  1. Edit the Criterion Title.
  2. Optionally, you may enter a Criterion Description.
  3. Select Save when done.

Edit the Rating Titles and Points.

Select the pencil icon next to the rating item you wish to edit.

  1. Enter the Rating Title. This is the performance level, such as "Does not meet expectations," "Meets expectations," or "Exceeds expectations."
  2. Enter the Points.
  3. Optionally, enter the Rating Description.
  4. Select Save when finished.

Add ratings to a criterion where needed.

To add another rating level to a criterion, mouse over the line separating one rating from the next and click on the + icon to insert a new rating level to the right of that location.

Delete any ratings you don’t need.

Select the pencil icon next to the rating item you wish to remove.

Remove rating

Select Remove.

Add as many new criteria as needed.

Select Add Criterion to add a new row.

Or, copy an existing criterion.

Select the Copy icon to copy an existing criterion.

Tip: Sometimes it is easier to copy an existing criterion and edit the copy, than to add a new one.

Drag and drop to reorder.

You can change the order of both criteria and ratings by clicking on the Reorder icon in each cell and dragging the selected item to its new location.

Delete any criteria you don't need.

Select the X icon to delete an unnecessary criterion.

Select the Remove button when prompted to confirm the deletion.
