Rubric scoring

This determines the way you set up the rubric.  The percentage set-up is the most commonly used.  The different rubric scoring set-ups (left-right) are explained below:
 
Standard rubric Image Added
This set-up allows you to set the weighting in percent and enter marks for different scale items.
 
Custom rubric Image Added
This removes the ability to weight the criterion but allows you to set different marks for each scale description rather than a whole item e.g. the scale item 'Poor' could be worth 0 in terms of one criterion and worth 1 for another.
 
Qualitative rubricImage Added
This removes the ability to weight criterion and add marks to scale items.  This is purely based on the feedback.  This is helpful for assignments where no grade is required but feedback is essential e.g. in Nottingham Advantage Award modules.

Criteria

Start by setting up the criteria, considering criterion names and descriptions (what they're looking at) and their weighting (if all criteria are not equal).  The criterion description is not necessary but can be helpful if you have multiple graders to ensure their understanding of the criteria associated with that criterion.  Click directly on the boxes you would like to amend, this brings up a white text box.  See example below: 

...

  • Scale title helps to distinguish the different scale items and create low-to-high scale set-up.
  • Mark awarded, below, is the number of marks to be awarded for meeting this scale item.
  • +, in the top right corner, to create more scale items.
  • In each empty cell, you can write a description of the scale item for each criterion. The general reason why this mark was given and suggestions for improvement. This cannot be amended for each student.
