Instructors can request an online self-directed training course or attend a face to face workshop.
The Rubric tool in Blackboard lists evaluation criteria which 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.
Rubrics must be created inside Blackboard using the Blackboard Rubric tool. The Rubric tool does not import MSWord documents with rubrics already created, however content from documents can be easily copied and pasted in criteria cells on the Rubric grid.
Rubrics can be created before, during or after a corresponding gradable item. If you have an existing course, a rubric can be created and linked to an assignment or column.
