How to Create a Rubric

  2. Select your Course
  3. collaborate-room-01

    2. Click Rubrics
    creating-rubrics-icollege-01

    creating-rubrics-icollege-02
  6. In the New Rubric window:
    1. Enter the Name of your rubric
    2. Choose the status of your rubric to be draft or published.
      NOTE: Choosing Draft will let you create your rubric, but you will not be able to use it in the assessment until you set the status to Published. You can also Archive your rubric.
    3. Enter description of your rubric
    4. Ensure that Analytics is checked in the Type field.
      NOTE: Selecting analytics enable user to create a rubric consisting of several assessment criteria with each of them having an assigned point value. If you check Holistic, your rubric will consist of one overall assessment.
    5. Enter your Initial # (number) of Levels
    6. Enter your Initial # (number) of Criteria
    7. For the Scoring method, you can choose:
      • Text Only: Performance levels indicated by Text Only. For example, three performance levels for a rubric can be “Poor”, “Good”, and “Excellent”
      • Points: Similar to Text Only, but includes points to assess performance. For example, three performance levels for a rubric can be “Poor (0 points)”, “Good (75 points)”, and “Excellent (125 points)”
      • Custom Points: This scoring method is only available to analytic rubrics. The Custom Points scoring method is similar to the Points scoring method, but you can customize the points given for each criterion. For example, if performance levels are “Poor”, “Good”, and “Excellent”, then the criterion “Spelling and Grammar” can be worth 0 points, 10 points, and 20 points for each level, and the criterion “Expression” can be worth 0 points, 30 points, and 60 points, making it worth three times the points of “Spelling and Grammar”
      • Percentages: Percentages is only available to holistic rubrics. A holistic rubric using Percentages can be automatically assessed based on the score of its associated item (for example, a Grade item)
