Using Rubrics in Blackboard

Using Rubrics in BlackboardJoin the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made up of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity, and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric.
