Navigating in the inline grading experience

You can quickly see whether or not a rubric has been graded using the information on the collapsed rubrics tile. If the rubric is complete, the collapsed rubric shows the overall level of the rubric, and if the rubric is not complete, the number of unscored criteria appears on the tile.

In order to most efficiently navigate the rubrics in the inline grading experience, it is important to also understand the expected behavior of the grading experience in hover state (when the pointer is hovering over a level, but no level has been selected) compared to focus state (when a level has been selected and the pointer is hovering over either a selected level or a different unselected level). If there is no level under the hover pointer and no level has been selected, the level area is empty. :

The interaction of the arrow buttons at either end of the evaluation slider now indicate a hover state compared to a focus state.

Note: For information about keyboard-only interactions, see How assistive technology interacts with the inline grading experience.

If there is hover pointer is on a level, the name, description, and score appear in the level information area below the slider

Moving the focus to a level directly selects the level. You can also press Enter to select or unselect a level. In preview mode, the selected level does not change when you review other levels’ information.

The focused level is highlighted inside slider segment.

When the level is selected, a larger box outlines the slider level, and a checkmark appears in the level

The level name and description of an evaluation level appear below the evaluation slider in the selected state, and the selection indicator appears on the slider at the chosen level.

When a level is selected, the level name and description appear, along with the selection indicator

When the rubric has been graded, the level information area displays the selected level’s information by default, unless other levels are in hover state in grading mode, or in hover or focus state in reviewing mode.

In grading mode, when you select a level, any default feedback provided in the rubric is also displayed in the Criterion Feedback text box. It is also possible to edit the feedback, if necessary.

Instructors can edit feedback in the Criterion Feedback text box using the Brightspace Editor

When a non-selected level is in hover state, the name, description, and score appear in the level information area below the slider.
