Managing Rubrics

You can only edit or delete a rubric from the org unit in which it was created and you cannot edit or delete a rubric that is being used by a Competencies activity or ePortfolio item, or that has been Published. If you want to modify a rubric that is being used, create a copy. If you want to restrict using a rubric in new activities or ePortfolio items, change its status to archived.

Changing a Rubric's Status

  1. On the Rubric List page, click the Actions context menu (drop-down) for the desired rubric.
  2. Select Set Status.
  3. Click Published.
