Import or create a Rubric with which to grade here. Rubrics consist of several Criteria running down the left side, which define the areas in which a student will be assessed. Levels of Achievement (LOA) run horizontally across the top, indicating proficiency levels and specifying point values for those levels.

You will select one Level of Achievement for each Criterion for every student when grading. The sum total of the points achieved in each criterion will comprise the student's final grade.

Step Two: Basic Assignment Options (Optional)

Learning tool integration

To grade students on their work in a learning tool, choose one here. If the tool sends back grades, we'll store them automatically. Otherwise you can enter grades manually like you would for any Basic assignment. Students will be able to launch the selected tool directly from their page for this assignment.

If you don't see the tool you want, you can add a new one with the Learning Tools portlet.
If the assignment is for students to read something, then you can add details about the material that should be read here:
