  2. On the Rubrics page, click New Rubric.
  3. Click on the Properties tab.
  4. Give the rubric a name.
  5. Set the rubric status from the Status drop-down menu. There are three rubric status types:
    • Draft status is the default initial status of a rubric. Draft rubrics are not available to associate with activities or grade items. Note: It is recommended that you keep your rubric status set to “Draft” until you have completely finished setting it up.
    • Published rubrics are available for associations with activities or grade items. Once a rubric has an association, you cannot change the rubric’s name, description, levels, and criteria.
    • Archived rubrics do not appear in default search results and are not available for new associations. Existing associations with archived rubrics remain functional.
  6. Give the rubric a description if desired.
