Rubrics in D2L BrightspaceMon, 22 Feb 20219:00am - 10:30am9/75Jeff Mundee, Instructional Technology Specialist

The Rubrics feature in D2L Brightspace make grading assessments easy and defendable.  Rubrics can be shared with students to provide guidance and set expectations for an assessment or they can be hidden and seen only by the instructors and TA's.  Grading work is much quicker, simply click on the criteria level the student has obtained and the system automatically adds the points and scores the assessment, with either predefined or custom feedback.  This session demonstrates how to create rubrics, attach them to an assessment and grade work.
