Rubrics are an efficient way to use scoring criteria as you grade a student’s assignment. They also provide students with guidelines for obtaining each grade level.
D2L Brightspace offers two types of rubrics: Analytic and Holistic. An analytic rubric allows you to evaluate certain criteria in the assignment, whereas a holistic rubric allows you to evaluate the assignment as a whole.
In the example below, an analytic rubric was used to evaluate an assignment:

- You can mark up the rubric as you review the student’s assignment and the scores you enter for each criterion will automatically add up to a total score that can be transferred to your gradebook.
- For each criterion, you can click the box to select the score earned. This will keep a running total of the student’s score.
- When finished, click Publish
