Part 4: Importing and Exporting Rubrics

leave a comment »

So far we have covered creating, associating, and grading with rubrics. Even if you are copy and pasting content from word into the rubrics tool, it can be time consuming if you are creating the same rubric for multiple courses. Blackboard has an export import function to help you share one rubric across many courses. Also if you are using one rubric with minor changes you can also copy a rubric into the same section and modify it to create a whole new rubric.

To Copy a Rubric

  • To copy a rubric go to the course that contains the rubric and go to the Control Panel> Course Tools> Rubric.
  • On the Rubrics page click the action link beside the Rubrics Name and select Copy.
  • A new rubric will appear with Copy of (Name of previous Rubric).
  • Click on the action link beside the copied rubric and select Edit.
  • From the Edit screen you can change the name of the new rubric and modify any of the components.

Export/Import a Rubric

  • To export a rubric go to the course that contains the rubric and go to the Control Panel> Course Tools> Rubric.
  • On the Rubrics page select the checkbox beside the Rubrics Name and click Export.
