Desire2Learn Rubrics © R. Craig Collins, 2013


Brief intro: You create rubrics in the Dropbox that you wish to use the rubric in.
You name and describe your rubric, and save.
You then decide the number of criteria you will have, and how many levels.
Criteria is what they were to do, and levels are how well they did it.

So if you accept the default number, it would look like this:

  Level 4
Level 3
Level 2
Level 1
Criterion 1        
Criterion 2        
Criterion 3        
Overall Score        

You can add additional criterion, add a new level, add a new Criteria Group, or reorder what you have.

After editing, it could look like this:

  Level 4
5 points
Level 3
3 Points
Level 2
1 Points
Level 1
0 Points
Step 1
did step 1
Forgot to do this in step 1 Forgot to do this and that in step 1 Didn't do
step 1
Step 2 Correctly
did step 2
Forgot to do this in step 2 Forgot to do this and that in step 2 Didn't do
step 2

Step 3

did step 3
Forgot to do this in step 3 Forgot to do this and that in step 3 Didn't do
step 2
Overall Score        

The rubric can calculate a grade, and pass on the feedback you assigned, such as Forgot to do this in step 1
Then the grade and feedback can be sent to the dropbox and gradebook.

My overly complex Rubric Example...
With multiple criteria groups (dark bar rows)
of criterion (rows), because I used mixed value ranges in the levels (columns);
after creating the levels, and indicating how many criterion (rows) and how many levels/score (columns),
I then had to go and add the descriptions on why the level/score was selected (Word count 1000+, word count >900, etc.)
(Note you can edit this auto feedback by clicking the pencil icon to the far right.

At the bottom, note the ability to preview the score, and then to Transfer the feedback (and Record the score) to the gradebook.
