A rubric is the heart of CodeGrade and can connect automatic grading with manual grading. We discussed best practices of rubric design in our webinar on "Better Feedback" here. 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 a lower bound and an upper bound for that category (e.g. between 0 and 5, or -10 and 0). 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.
