Rubrics are a wonderful tool in D2L. Before grading with a rubric, the rubric must first be written and attached to the Assignment submission folder.
Once that’s done, it’s time to login and go to Assignments, just like if you were grading any other submission. However, there’s a big difference. Now, with the rubric, you have a built in template for feedback.
When you click on Evaluate for a specific student, you’ll see this page. Click on the Rubric icon to bring it up:
From here, a rubric will pop into the window.
From here, you can pick the level for each of the criteria which will then give the student the corresponding score and feedback written in the rubric. If, however, you would like to customize a student’s feedback (recommended), click on the pencil. Clicking Save will record your work, but allow you to go back to the student’s work. Save and Record will put the score and feedback into the fields on the Evaluation page.
From there, simply hit Publish and it’s done.
