Rubrics and the Dropbox

The Rubrics tool can be used in conjunction with the Dropbox to make grading student submissions more efficient, with objective-based feedback that can be customized. [VIDEO DEMO]

Note the following about the Rubrics tool and Grades: It is a current weakness of D2L that the only place where the score from a rubric can be pushed to the grades page automatically is in the dropbox. Rubrics attached to a discussion topic and quiz do not push scores into the grades tool. D2L’s design philosophy for the rubric tool is strongly connected to the competencies (SLO) tool and its connection to grades appears to be an afterthought for the programmers. I hope that future versions of D2L will allow for discussion and quiz rubrics to push scores to the grades tool.
