Using Rubrics in Blackboard

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made up of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity, and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric.
