Copying a Rubric within a Course

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

A Rubric is a tool that lists evaluation criteria for an assignment. Rubrics can help instructors and TAs explain their evaluations to students. Rubrics can be viewed as a grading widget in Blogs, Journals, Wikis, and Discussion Boards. Instructors or TAs can also associate the Rubric to a grading column in the Grade Center and view the Rubric while assigning a grade. Instructors have the option to display Rubrics to students.
Copying a Rubric within a course is helpful if you have similar assignments that follow the same or similar criteria. This will allow you to maintain many of the settings and modify as needed.

NB: This menu is an expandable and collapsible menu. If it is collapsed, click on the caret to the left of the menu item to expand the menu.
