Rubric grading configuration

The Rubrix Grading configuration allows you to define how domain scores are combined into a single rubric score. It displays the overall grade ranges and each individual domain range, and how each range relates to the overall range. It also provides a mechanism for weighting domain scores.

Prerequisites

To use Rubric Grading, you will need a rubric that has some number of domains, each with some number of summative elements. Each domain must have a domain grading table, which defines how a single domain score is tabulated.

The Rubric Grading interface

The rubric grading interface shows the overall grades and how they relate to individual domain grades.

Grading overview

  1. The overall grade ranges shows the rubric grades and their ranges, scored from 0...100. This example shows the default overall grade
  2. The domain grade ranges show each domain and their individual grade ranges based on the domain grading table
  3. Overall grade ranges can be adjusted using the rubric range slider handles.
  4. Domain grade ranges can be adjusted using the domain grade slider handles.
  5. Additional settings are available, including Edit rubric grades, Edit domain weights, and Learn more ....
  6. You can also adjust the detail level, to show more information about each domain and rubric grading range.

Adding rubric grades

The grading interface includes two default grades (Pass and Fail). If you would like to add additional grades or change these grades, you can do the following:

  1. Click the cog below the Overall grades and select Edit rubric grades. The overall rubric grades will change appearance.
  2. To edit the existing grades, click the grade text or pencil and update the fields in the popup.
  3. To add a new grade, click a [+] at the location where you would like to add a grade.
  4. To remove a grade, click the grade text or pencil and then click the trash icon on the popup that appears.

Once you are happy with the set of overall grades, press Save grades to return to the grade range display and editor.

Adjusting grade ranges

Setting up the overall grading has two parts: adjusting the overall ranges, and mapping the domain ranges to the overall grades.

Overall grades

Overall grade detail

The rubric grade ranges have been adjusted so that a Pass is 72 or higher by dragging the grade range slider handle to the right.

Mapping domain grades to the overall grade

Domain range mappings

The domain ranges have also been adjusted using the drag handles, so that the passing grades line up with the pass line from the overall ranges.

Mapped grades

Once you have finished mapping domain ranges to rubric ranges, you will see something like:

Adjusting domain weights

Domains can be weighted by adjusting their overall point contribution.

Weights

  1. Click the cog and select Edit domain weights.
  2. The range editor will fade away, and the domain weights will appear in the left margin
  3. Adjust the point values for the various domains to set their weights
  4. Press save (at the bottom of the set of domain weights) to continue
