How do I grade with iRubric in Assignments?
Assignments that have been added to the Gradebook should be graded directly in Assignments instead of using the iRubric tool. This will ensure grades are updated in both tools (Gradebook and Assignments).
The process involves three steps:
You can create your own rubrics (Build an iRubric) or import rubrics from a public gallery of rubrics (iRubric Gallery) and modify them to suit your purposes. Any rubrics you have developed will be stored in My Rubrics. See iRubric Help for more information on creating rubrics.
When first visiting iRubric, you are placed on the Grades tab. If you have navigated to one of the other available tabs in the tool, click Grades to attach a rubric.
Click the paperclip (Select iRubric) icon beside the item you want to grade using a rubric.
After selecting the icon, you are taken to the rCampus web site to attach the rubric you want to use in grading.
On the rCampus web site, use the select a rubric button to attach a rubric to the assignment/gradebook item.
From the available list, choose the rubric you want by clicking the select button beside the rubric of choice.
After selecting the rubric, you are returned to the main iRubric web page. Select save to save your selection.
Click the Grade link under the title of the assignment you would like to grade using a rubric.
To grade with iRubric in Assignments, the File Preview switch must be set to Off.
You will see a list of all the students in the class. Click on the student's name to grade their submission. In this example, we will be selecting Student, Three (mai4n-stu3).
The student submission will be display as follows:
- The student's name, username, submission date, and graded status.
- Next, under Assignment Submission, the student's inline submission text (if applicable) is shown.
- Under Submitted Attachments, any attached files will appear. The filename as well as the the file size and submission date are also shown.
Select the checkerboard (Grade with iRubric) icon to begin grading the student's assignment with the attached rubric.
A new window opens to display the criterion grading matrix for the attached rubric. Within the matrix, select the appropriate cell to select the grade for each criterion.
Tip: Comments can be added in the Quick feedback box in the last column of the rubric.
When you have finished grading, select the save evaluation button in the bottom center of the page.
iRubric will inform you that the rubric has been scored and saved. You will also see the total score and percentage of possible points. Select close to close this window and return to the student's assignment grade page.
- If you are finished grading and would like to release the information to the student, select the Save and Release to Student button.
- Alternatively, if you would like to save the grade but wait and release it to the student at a later date, you may select the Save and Don't Release to Student button.
IMPORTANT: Grade information will not update in Gradebook until the assignment's grade has been released to students.
Tip: Some faculty prefer to release all of the grades at one time when they have finished entering grades for the whole class. Use the Release Grades link on the assignment's Grade page to release grades at one time.
If you have more submissions to grade and would like to go directly to the next submission in the list, select the Navigate between students with submissions only checkbox and then the Next button at the bottom of the page. Any changes made on the grading screen will be saved but NOT released to the student.
