Rubrics are tools that help you explain your evaluations to students and help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Blackboard 9.1 allows instructors to create and view rubrics when they grade assignments. In addition, rubrics can be made visible to students. There are two ways to add a rubric in your course. You can create them in the rubric manager by clicking on the Course Tools on the left side of your course, or you can create them right within your assignment in the Edit view.
Method 2: Creating a Rubric from within an Assignment
Once you create your rubric in this way (within an assignment) it will be associated with the assignment and you will see the rubric options below:
Rubrics can also be imported. There are many Blackboard rubrics available (for grading discussion boards, writing assignments, blogs, etc.) on Blackboard’s website.
Note: for information on grading with a rubric, please see the next help document entitled, “Grading with a Rubric.”
