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.
