This article explains the Blackboard Rubric Type options.

When creating a rubric, you can edit the rubric grid so it corresponds to the type of feedback and scoring appropriate for the assignment. It is important to note that once a rubric is used for grading, you cannot edit it. You can copy the rubric to create a duplicate, which you can then edit.

Use the drop-down to select the Rubric Type. The options are as follows.Blackboard Rubric Type Drop-down Menu with Points option selected.

  • No Points: Feedback only.
  • Points: Single point value for each Level of Achievement.
  • Point Range: Range of values for each Level of Achievement.
  • Percent: Flexible depending on each assignment's possible points.
  • Percent Range: Range of values for each Level of Achievement. During the grading process, you select the appropriate percentage level for a particular Level of Achievement and the system calculates the points earned by multiplying the weight x achievement percentage x item points.

If you want to create a rubric that you can use for multiple assignments with differing point values, a percent-based rubric is more flexible.
