Assignment: Using the Rubric Grading Method Moodle ISU
The Assignment activity allows you to create and use a rubric as an advanced grading method. A rubric defines general criteria and then provides detailed descriptions for each specific point level possible for that criteria. The end result is a grid with the criteria listed in the first column, specific point levels across the top (NOT ranges), descriptions for each criteria level and feedback for each criterion.
If you would rather use general criteria descriptions with a point range, see Assignment: Using the Grading Guide Grading Method
This guide will help you to:
You may select Rubric as the method when you set up an assignment or you may go back into the assignment settings before students have submitted any assignments. For more information about setting up assignments, see Assignment
After you have selected the Rubric grading option, you will need to create the rubric.
Note: If you would like to create a new grading form from a template, see the Reuse a Rubric section below.
Note: Using a unique and specific name for your rubric will help you in searching for it when you want to use it for another assignment or course.
Note: Students will see this description.
Note: In order for the rubric to calculate as expected, you must always include a level with 0 points.
Note: When you add levels to the first criterion, each additional criterion you add will have the same number of levels as the first line.
Note: You can also use the Save as draft or Cancel options to save a rubric in progress or clear the options.
You can modify or update the rubric at any time. If you have already used the rubric to grade assignments, you will need to review those assignments and update the graded rubrics as needed.
Any rubric you create is available for you to use in other assignments and courses. Rubrics that are published as a template can be shared by any instructor across Moodle ISU.
When you grade with a rubric, you will Click the levels that match the student’s work, add comments for the criteria and/or add overall comments.
Note: The box will highlight as you move your cursor over it, and remain highlighted once it is selected. To elect a different level, Click on another level.
Note: The criterion comments can only be viewed in the assignment.
Note: The Feedback comments section will only appear if you checked the Feedback comments box under Feedback types in the Edit settings section for the assignment.
Note: If you want to go to a different student you can either Click on the dropdown arrow at the top right of the screen and then select the student you want or you can Click the directional arrows to move forward or backward.
