Creating and Associating Rubrics

Creating an Analytic Rubric

Analytic rubrics allow you to assess an assignment based on more than one criterion in a single rubric. With analytic rubrics, levels of achievement are displayed in columns and your assessment criteria are displayed in rows.

  • The criteria are characteristics of good performance on a task.
  • The levels are used to assess the student's performance on each criteria.

Analytic rubrics may use a points, custom points or text only scoring method. Points and custom points analytic rubrics may use both text and points to assess performance; with custom points, each criterion may be worth a different amount of points. For both points and custom points, an overall score is provided based on the total number of points achieved.

If you already have a Rubric that is in a Microsoft Word or PDF version, you will need to re-create it in BeachBoard. In the following example, we will be re-creating this Analytic Rubric [DOC] in BeachBoard.

Creating a Holistic Rubric

Holistic rubrics allow you to assess participants' overall achievement on an assignment based on a single criterion using predefined achievement levels.

Holistic rubrics may use a percentages or text only scoring method. Percentage holistic rubrics have a percentage range associated with each achievement level, which allows users' quiz and grade item activities to automatically be assigned an achievement level based on their quiz score or grade. Other assignments and ePortfolio items may also be evaluated with percentage holistic rubrics, you just have to manually enter users' achievement levels.
