Rubrics are very helpful when grading assessments. In Blackboard, if you have an assessment you can attach a rubric to it and then use the rubric to mark students assignments. The rubric will then create a grade from the rubric and automatically enter this into the appropriate column in the Grade Centre.
► Where to Create a Rubric
There are three areas where rubrics can be created. The first two are created for the assessment itself. The last area holds rubrics for future use. This holding area also will contain the rubrics that were created in the assessment.
When an assessment is created there is an option to add a rubric. A rubric can be added later by editing the assessment.
In Grade Centre
A rubric can be added to any column but calculated columns.
Note: This is the only way to add a Rubric to a SafeAssign assignment.
