Align Rubric Results from D2L Brightspace

Once the integration is activated, assessment leads can pull assessment results from D2L Brightspace into measures in Planning & Self-Study using their own accounts. To do this, an assessment lead will follow these steps:
  1. Either create a new measure or add results to an existing one. Create a new measure and select “Align Rubric”.

  3. Select D2L Brightspace as the source from which to pull measure results. The assessment lead will then authenticate with their D2L credentials to authorize the system to access the rubric results data they have access to in D2L Brightspace.mceclip6.pngSource options for aligning rubric results from another system.

  4. Select the organization and artifact where the rubric has been used to pull relevant assessment results. The user will be able to view the organization(s) that they are part of, and view assignments and discussion topics as artifacts.

  6. The rubric list will filter automatically based on the selected assignment/topic. The user will then be able to choose to pull either the overall rubric score or rubric criteria results into Planning & Self-Study.
    Select the Rubric from the list & choose overall score or rubric criteria results.
  7. Once aligned, the filtered results from D2L Brightspace will display in the measure in Planning & Self-Study, as well as in the Annual Report generated from within Planning & Self-Study.
