Rubrics Tool

The Rubric tool in Blackboard is entirely interactive (meaning you can grade right inside the rubric.) Once created and attached to a graded activity, the score and feedback entered in the rubric will automatically be recorded in the Grade Center. Rubrics can be attached to Assignments, Discussion Board, Essay, Short Answer and File Response Test Questions, Wiki entries, Journal entries, Blog entries and Grade Center Grade Columns.
