Edit a rubric

You can only edit a rubric in the org unit where it was created. You cannot edit a rubric that is being used by a Competencies activity or Brightspace ePortfolio item.

You can edit rubric properties, levels, criterion, and criteria groups.

To edit a rubric:

  1. On the navbar, click Rubrics.
  2. On the Rubrics page, click on the rubric you want to edit.
  3. Make your changes.
    Tip: If more than one criterion group appears in your rubric, direction arrows appear to the left of the criterion group header to reorder the criterion groups in the rubric.
  4. Click Close. Your edits save automatically.

 

It is also possible to copy a single rubric criterion to facilitate reusing criteria that have already been created.

  1. Open the rubric you want to edit.
  2. On the Edit Rubrics page, click the action menu beside the criterion name.
  3. Click Copy Row.

    Note: The new criterion is added under the original with the criterion name Copy of [name of original criterion]. It is automatically highlighted so you can rename the new criterion.

  4. Rename the newly created criterion.

 

To delete a single criterion from a rubric

  1. Open the rubric you want to edit.
  2. On the Edit Rubrics page, click the action menu beside the criterion name.
  3. Click Delete Row.

 

Edit an assessed rubric

Normally, rubrics that have been used for evaluation are locked and can't be edited. However if you have the Edit Assessed Rubrics permission, you can correct spelling errors, clarify wording, and make other minor changes that shouldn't impact the academic integrity of the rubric.

To edit an assessed rubric:

  1. On the navbar, click Rubrics.
  2. On the Rubrics page, click the rubric you want to edit.
  3. On the Edit Rubric page, click Edit Text in the alert banner at the top of the page.
  4. In the Edit this assessed rubric? dialog box, click Edit Text.
  5. Make your changes.
  6. Click Close. Your edits save automatically.

The red boxes in the following image indicate which fields you can edit:

Note: You can't make structural changes (such as adding evaluation levels or criteria), edit points, or add outcome alignments to assessed rubrics.
