To grade a response, click the rubric item (box with a number in it) or press the number on your keyboard. You can select as many rubric items as you would like and the sum will be the final score.

The rubric allows to grade activity submissions quickly and consistently, applying the same set of feedback to every submission. When you grade using the rubric, you can change it at any time meaning that you can change the number of points or a comment with an item and it will be applied to all students who received the same mark.  You can reorder the rubric items by clicking and dragging them or add a new item by clicking Add Rubric Item.

For a response to be considered graded, you must choose at least one rubric item or enter a point adjustment.

To move to another submission, click Next Ungraded or press the right arrow key on your keyboard.

Rubric Settings

You can access the Rubric Settings popup by clicking on the icon next to the Total Points.

Scoring Modes

Positive Scoring means that rubric items default to adding points, starting from 0. With Negative Scoring (the default mode), rubric items default to subtracting points from the total points available for that question. If you want to have a rubric item that has the opposite effect of the default scoring style, you can change the sign before the point value from a minus (-) to a plus (+) or vice versa.

Ceilings and Floors

A point ceiling prevents scores greater than 100% and a point floor prevents scores less than 0%. These are both enabled by default so that you don’t get scores out of the expected range, but you can disable them for extra credit questions or other situations where you don’t want the default behavior.

Keyboard Shortcuts
