Go to the Assignment Management tab.
Navigate to the Rubric tab.
Click on the Plus icon to create a new rubric.
Create a new category by pressing one of the "Discrete category" or "Continuous category" buttons.
Discrete rubric categories are traditional rubric categories. They allow you to create multiple levels within a category. While grading you can select the level the student achieved.
Continuous rubric categories allow you to set a maximum amount points, and give everything between 0 and the set maximum for that category. These categories are especially useful when automatically grading using AutoTest.
Set a category name and category description.
You can create new levels by clicking on the empty level with a large Plus in it. For each level set a header, a description, and an amount of points.
Add as many levels and categories as necessary. You can reorder levels by dragging the handle up or down.
