Blackboard allows you to create and use rubrics in different ways. While the general formatting remains the same, the way students will view them differs.


Note: Any type of rubric is by default invisible to students. To make your rubric visible read this article: Making Blackboard Rubrics Visible to Students


Column Rubrics
These are rubrics that are applied to entire grading columns. Students will be able to see the rubric from the My Grades section of the course.


Assignment Rubrics
These are rubrics that are applied to an assignment. Students will see these in both the assignment when clicked on and in the My Grades section of the course.


Test Question Rubrics
These are rubrics used with a specific question in a test. Students will find these in the test feedback for the question the rubric was applied to. Please note that you must also enable the students to view test feedback (which is by default turned off) in addition to making the rubric visible.


Journals and Blogs
If grading is turned on for these tools, rubrics may be included for the overall journal or blog. Students will find the rubrics either in the Journal or Blog, or through the My Grades section of the course.


Wikis
If grading is turned on for a wiki, rubrics may be included for the overall wiki. Students may access the rubric through the My Grades section of the course.


Discussion Boards
If grading is turned on for a forum, then a rubric may be included. Students may access the rubric through the My Grades section of the course.
