To associate your rubric with Competencies or ePortfolio, in the Advanced Availability section, select the Competencies or ePortfolio check boxes.Note: Competencies MUST be checked if you plan to assess the rubric.What are associations? You can associate a rubric with a tool such as Competencies or ePortfolio as a means of assessing items created in those tools. When you create an association for a rubric, you cannot edit or delete the rubric. To make changes after associating it with a tool, you should change the rubric’s status to “Archived”, then copy the rubric and make your changes to the new copy.
Click on the Levels and Criteria (Analytic) tab.
Define Analytic Rubric Achievement Levels and Criteria
Select the context menu for the Criteria heading column, select Edit Criteria Group.
Note: Editing the Criteria Group will allow you to edit each Criterion Name and Level Name on one page rather than individually. Instructors are welcome to select the context menu, then select Edit for each Criterion and Level one-by-one, if preferred.
Optional: Change the Criteria Group Name to another name. (i.e. Critical Analysis, Presentation, etc.) By default, a rubric has one Criteria Group. You can add new Criteria or Levels or Criteria Groups if needed.
Modify the Level Names and Score (point) values. The Levels are the column headings that will appear on the rubric. (i.e. Exemplary, Satisfactory, Developing, etc.)Recommendation: Start with the lowest achievement level and work your way up. Note: For rubrics with Custom Points scoring method, the score values can be modified only when editing each criterion.
Edit the Criterion Names, which are the things that will be assessed. (i.e. Explanation of issues, Use of Information, etc.)
Set the level descriptions for each level and criteria. Do one of the following:
Click Edit Level from the context menu of a performance level you want to modify. This will allow you to set the level descriptions for each Criteria for a specific level at once.
Click Edit Criterion from the context menu of any criterion. This will allow you to set all levels for a specific Criteria at once.
Add descriptions for each performance level to outline the requirements that must be met for this criterion. Optional standard feedback can be added for each of the levels. Individual feedback can later be provided when assessing individual assignments.
