An example of Rubric criteria in Assignment activity
This guide shows you how to create rubric criteria in Assignment activity.
What to know:
The rubric feature affords a teacher the ability to provide grades and feedback in an alternative manner to simple grading.
Click the ’Turn editing on’ button displayed near the upper right of the module area/course.
From the pop-up activity chooser window, locate and select The Assignment activity, then click the ’Add’ button.
Now you come to the assignment creation page.
You’ll now go to the settings area within this area. Scroll down to the ‘Grade’ section, then from the ‘Grading Method’ drop-down menu, please choose 'Rubric', then 'Save changes'.
Now you are taken to a screen where you can choose the grading method either by using a template or creating a grading form from scratch. Alternatively you have the option of even changing the grading method.
You will have to name your Rubric, much in the same manner as you named the Assignment activity initially.
You can add negative points to your rubric, for example, if your students submit after the deadline, you have the ability to penalise them, so that their final grade reflects this. Please note you will also have to add a criteria description that does not negatively affect their score for example '0'.
Once you have completed your rubric, go down to the 'rubric options', decide which ones are applicable for your needs, then save the rubric and make it ready.
Note: it's advisable the you leave the 'Calculate grade having a minimum score of the minimum achievable grade for the rubric' ticked, as unticking this option could affect your rubric in a significant and often negative manner.
Here is and example of the rubric.
Note: when you are grading with your rubric you are obliged to select a rubric item from each criteria, none can be omitted, therefore if you believe that a student has not met an of expectation please factor this in to you rubric items/descriptions when you are designing it ie. creating a description with 'not met' and applying a '0' grade for that item.
