Rubrics keep expectations clear and make assessing student work efficient.

To use a rubric to assess students, choose Rubric when adding an assignment.

  • Selecting the rubric option will allow you to use a generic rubric or create your own.
  • We recommend you create your own rubric, tailored to meet your expectations and classroom needs.
  • Rubrics are based on the points assigned and weighted accordingly.
  • So when you append a rubric category to an assignment, you can select 4, 3, 2 ,1 as a score. That gives the student a point score based on the rubric score you've chosen.
  • You can always go beyond the 4 point scale. Click "Add Another" when creating a scale to add an additional point.
  • Example: if an assignment is worth 10 points, and a student scores a 3 on a rubric, then the student has earned 7.5 points. The math is as follows:

(student’s score on rubric category / 4) x (assignment value) = student score

You can also select preset rubrics for Math, English, and Social-Emotional Learning. To access these rubrics, simply select the desired subject from that list (you can also select multiple subjects. Just keep clicking on subjects until you have the ones appropriate for your class). These preset rubrics will then appear in your Rubrics in Class Settings. You may need to refresh your page to see them.

Note: By default, all rubrics are toggled off, but if after enabling them you find they are not are not appropriate for your classroom, you have the ability to toggle them off. You can also edit them:
