Creating and Managing Rubrics

The Rubrics tab is used to create, edit, and view rubrics associated with a tier. A rubric is a table used to define assessment criteria and to evaluate the submitter’s performance of each criterion. Rubrics are a component of a template and are scored through the template.

To create a rubric:

1. Navigate to the organization or program for which the rubric will be added

2. Click the Rubrics tab

3. Click the New Rubric button

6. To add descriptions, click the description box, and type in the desired text.  To change the label of elements and levels, click the labels and type in the desired text.  For each level of an element, point values can also be added.
5. To map standards or outcomes to an element, click the Add Alignment button.

6. When finished aligning standards or outcomes, click the SAVE button.

7. When finished building the rubric, click the PUBLISH button to make the rubric usable in templates

TIP: Instead of publish, clicking the Save button will save the rubric but will not make it available for use in a template.

NOTE:  Once a rubric has been published, it can still be edited.  However, the rubric’s point values and associated standards/outcomes are “locked in” and cannot be changed.  Additional standards and outcomes can be added at any time.
