It is also possible to give additional general feedback about the submission as a whole. This can be done by clicking the Pencil button on the top right corner of the submission page. General Feedback supports snippets and markdown too. Students can respond to General Feedback - just like with Inline Feedback - and threads can be formed.

Rubrics and final grade

Opening the rubric and inputting your final grade
Once you are done writing feedback, you can fill in the rubric category at the bottom of the screen and a final grade will come out. It is also possible to overwrite this grade manually.
Some rubric categories are impossible to manually fill in, this is because these are linked to AutoTest categories.
