How do I grade an assignment using a rubric?
This article describes only those details particular to using a rubric to grade an assignment within the new grading interface. More options within the new grading interface are illustrated in the article, How do I grade an assignment? For information about differences between the new and legacy grading interfaces, see How do the new and legacy grading interfaces differ?
Go to Assignments.
Check the box next to 'Use new grading interface'.
The legacy grading interface is the default setting, but the Use new grading interface checkbox will thereafter reflect whichever grading interface you most recently used.
Select the student's name for the submission to be graded.
Tip: You may also click on the rubric icon in the same row as the student's name to open the grading rubric for that student. However, opening the rubric from here will bypass the instructor's view of the student submission, so it is best used to review or verify a previously scored rubric.
Select the appropriate rating level for each criterion.
The points will be added up automatically based on your rating selections. The total points earned will appear in the Grade field next to the rubric icon.
Select Done to dismiss the pop-up window.
(Optional) If you allowed individual score adjustments, you may fine tune the rating points if needed.
(Optional) Select the Comment icon if you would like to include additional feedback.
Enter your comments into the text field provided, and select Done when finished.
Note: The Comments icon changes color when comments are saved.
Save when finished grading the submission.
Note that a rubric icon which has been scored changes to green in color once the score is saved.
