Grade with a rubric

This article is for teachers.

You can use a rubric to grade and give feedback. You can grade rubrics from the Student work page or the grading tool.

After you start grading, you can’t edit or delete the assignment's rubric.

For details on how students can check their rubrics, go to Check your work with rubrics.
