Use a Rubric with a Grade Column

Rubrics may be tied directly to a Grade item (gradebook column) for manually graded assignments where no connection to a D2L tool exists, such as a face-to-face assignment. Students are not able to see the rubric before it is graded. If you want students to use the rubric as a guide for their work, you will need to provide it for them; however, they can see the rubric score and feedback via Grades once it is complete.

See Connect a Rubric to a Grade Column for information about connecting a rubric to a grade column.
