How Do I Add a Rubric to an Assignment?

Occasionally, Rubrics are added to Assignments 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 Assignments, please visit the outcomes alignment lesson.


Open Assignments


In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.


Open Assignment


Open the Assignment by clicking the assignment title.


Add Rubric


Click the Edit button.


Click the Add Rubric button.


Create Rubric


Create a new rubric for your assignment [1]. You can also find an existing rubric by clicking the Find a Rubric link [2].

If you want to write free-form comments to students, select the I'll write free-form comments... checkbox [3].

If you want to use the rubric for grading, select the Use this rubric for assignment grading checkbox [4].

If you don't want students to see the score total for the rubric in their quiz results, select the Hide score total for assessment results checkbox [5]. Students can still see the point values for each criterion, but the total score will not be shown at the bottom of the rubric.

When you are finished, click the Create Rubric button [6].
