Add a Rubric to an Activity

Instructors can use the rubric to grade and provide feedback to digital submissions within the activity tool itself. For example, if a student submits a document to an assignment submission folder, the instructor can use the rubric within the tool alongside the document for grading and feedback.

Depending on the rubric visibility, students can easily preview rubrics within the activity prior to submitting work. Students can also view published graded rubrics and instructor feedback within the activity and in their Grades. For more information, see Control the Visibility in Rubrics.

Note: Instructors will use the rubric to assess activities from within the given activity, not from within the gradebook.
