How Do I Add a Rubric to a Quiz?

Generally speaking, Rubrics are added to Quizzes when you have an Outcome inside of the Rubric that you would like to use for alignment purposes. For more information on the benefits of aligning Outcomes to Quizzes, please visit the outcomes alignment lesson.

Note: You cannot use a rubric for grading in quizzes.
