How do I add a rubric to a Gradebook item?

Updated Dec 18, 2020

Go to Gradebook.

Select Gradebook from the site Tool Menu.

Add or Edit a Gradebook item.

  1. Select Add Gradebook Item to create a new item.
  2. Or select the drop-down arrow in the column heading for an existing Gradebook item, and then select Edit Item Details.

Note: If the Gradebook item is locked, the grade item association is coming from another tool. A rubric cannot be associated with locked items, since they must be graded from within the tool of origin.

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 rubric from student view prior to submission.

Select Save Changes when finished setting up the gradebook item.

A rubric is now attached to the Gradebook item.

Gradebook items with rubrics attached will display a rubric icon next to the title of the item.
