Select the rubric.
Select the rubric icon to display the 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.
Adjust points. (Optional)
In individual score adjustment was applied in the assignment's settings, the rating points can be modified if desired. The modification is denoted by the original criteria score struck through. In the example above, the student was awarded 24 points, but the instructor chose to adjust their score for the Argument criterion from 20 to 19. The 20 is struck through and the student's overall score changes to 23.
Optional: Select the Comment icon [Leave a comment for the student about this criterion] if you would like to include additional feedback.

- Enter your comment into the text field provided.
- Select Done.
