Rubrics are useful for instructors to grade assignments, and using Moodle you may create or append a rubric for any of your assignments.

4. If this is the first rubric you have made in Moodle, click Define new grading form from scratch. If you have made a rubric already in Moodle you would like to use, click Create a new grading form from a template.

For each level, the level definition and the number of points associated with the level should be specified. Neither the criterion description nor the level definition text fields support embedded images yet. When you are done, click Save.
