    Click on the Plus icon to create a new rubric.
  2. 2.
    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.
  3. 3.
    Set a category name and category description.
  4. 4.
    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.
  5. 5.
    Add as many levels and categories as necessary. You can reorder levels by dragging the handle up or down.
