The Associated Rubrics will give you several options, you can remove, view, or edit the rubric under the Name option. The Type will give you the opportunity to use for grading or for secondary grading. The show rubric to students’ option offers four choices:

  • No does not allow students to view the rubric at any time.
  • Yes (With Rubric Scores) allows students to view the rubric when you make the item available, including possible point or percentage values.
  • Yes (Without Rubric Scores) allows students to view the rubric when you make the item available, but does not include the possible point or percentage values.
  • After Grading allows students to view the rubric only after you have completed grading their submissions.

After the viewing options are set click Submit.
