Instructors are able to create detailed rubrics to grade student assignments with in CN Classic LMS courses. Students can view these rubrics when they submit and assignment and after it is graded.
Step 1: Instructor creates the Rubric
A rubric is created while the instructor creates or edits an assignment. In a CN Classic LMS course, there are the following two ways to create a new assignment:
1. GradeBook > Manage Items & Categories > +Create GradeBook Item
2. Task > Assignment SmartLink > +Add a new GradeBook Item
If you want to add a rubric to an existing assignment, take one of the follow two approaches to edit an assignment:
1. GradeBook > from the assignment column title, click the gear icon and select Edit Item
2. GradeBook > Manage Items & Categories > Edit the existing assignment
Once you are on the assignment edit form, click the Add Rubric checkbox. This will open the rubric creation form:
There are three different sections that need to be filled out:
Criteria: A name and description of the criteria for that row.
Score: The point value for the different scoring options. Includes name, description, and points. By default, the points are generated automatically as 10 and 0, but can be changed in the score sections or on the points section.
Points: The total point value of that row's criteria. If you change this value, it will automatically change the point value of each score scale in that row, distributed evenly.
After the rubric is completed, review (especially, the point values), then click Save:

Instructors can also leave comments in the Points column. When grading is complete, the instructor can click Save to submit the grade.
