Rubrics are great way to give feedback and grade assignments.

Add Rubric to Assignment:
1. In your Beacon Learning course turn editing on and create a new assignment by clicking the "Add an assignment or activity"
2. Add an "Assignment" activity
3. In the “Grade” settings, make the "maximum grade" value equal to the maximum point value possible on your rubric.
4. Choose Rubric from the Grading Method drop-down box.

After saving and displaying this assignment, you'll see options to "define" or create a new rubric or select a template from a previously-saved rubric.

5. If you already have your rubric saved as a Word document, you can easily copy and paste text into these fields.
