Rubrics provide a means of clearly outlining the criteria to be used in grading an assessment. Blackboard 9.1 includes a rubric creation tool, the ability to associate a rubric with an assessment (e.g. Assignment, Blog, Journal, Wiki, Discussion Board, essay questions in a Test), and a ready means for using that rubric to grade an assessment.
View the following OnDemand tutorials from Blackboard for more information.
The Turnitin building block will be installed in Blackboard 9.1 Instructors using GradeMark within a Turnitin assignment will continue to have the ability to create rubrics in GradeMark and use them while grading Turnitin assignments. Please refer to the ITS GradeMark web site for additional information regarding using GradeMark in Blackboard.
