How do I associate a rubric with an assessment (i.e., test or quiz)?

Updated Dec 18, 2020

Rubrics may be associated with individual questions on an assessment. A rubric can be added to any of the manually graded question types: File Upload, Short Answer/Essay, or Student Audio Response.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select Tests & Quizzes from the site tool menu.

Add or Edit a manually graded question type in an assessment.

You will see the Grading Rubric options just below the point value information, once you have selected one of the instructor-graded question types.

Configure the rubric options.

  1. Select the Use the following rubric to grade this assignment radio button.
  2. Choose the desired rubric from the drop-down menu. Note: A rubric must exist in the site before they will display in the menu. Shared rubrics must first be copied to the site before they are available for selection.
  3. (Optional) Preview the selected rubric.
  4. (Optional) Check the box for Adjust individual student scores to be able to change the number of points awarded for individual criteria ratings while grading student submissions on a per-student basis.
  5. (Optional) Check the box for Hide Rubric from student to keep the rubric hidden from view prior to submission.

Select Save when finished setting up the assessment question.

A rubric is now associated with the question.

Questions with rubrics attached display a rubric icon next to the points for the question.
