Creating and Managing Rubrics

The Rubric 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. Click the Hierarchy button located at the top of the page.
     2. On the right side of the page, click the Rubric tab.
     3. Highlight the tier in which the rubric will be added. To highlight the tier, click on it.
     4. Click the Create Rubric button.

      9. When finished mapping standards, click the mapping page SAVE button.

      10. When finished building the rubric, click the create rubric page 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 are “locked in” and cannot be changed.  Additional standards can be added at any time.
