Grade with a rubric

To use rubrics, you need to sign up for the beta program. To learn more, go to Sign up for Classroom beta programs.

Note: The previous version of Classroom (without the Classwork page) is deprecated and will be discontinued on September 4, 2019. For more information, see Classroom classes without the Classwork page.

 

In Classroom, you can use a rubric to grade and give feedback.

Once you’ve selected rubric ratings or entered rubrics points while grading, you can’t edit or delete the assignment's rubric.
