Rubric Ratings

I am not able to list a range of grading ratings for each 'criteria ' on a rubric without repeating a particular 'score'. e.g. if a 'B' is 60-70 and an 'A' is 70 -100 the repetition of the 70 here is an issue. if I change the  '70' to a '69' or '71' it changes both iterations of that number. Adding decimal places also does not change this repetition.

Are there any work arounds that may mitigate this?  Any help appreciated.

Many thanks

In a rubric, the B and A fields can't both contain the figure 70 unless one includes the > or < symbol (if both fields simply contained 70, the rubric wouldn't know what to do with the score). So B would need to be 60-69 (edited to add: or <70, which represents a figure below 70) and A needs to be 70-100. You'll find details in the Select Range section of  How do I add a rubric in a course?

Exactly and that is my point, as I mentioned in my original post. Canvas will not allow me to have 100 >70 for one grade and then 69>60 for the next.

@AnthonyBailey  Here's a screenshot of one of my rubrics:

Have you enabled ranges on the rubric?

So the repetition of 2.3 is not a problem?? That looks like the same point value in two Ratings to me?

Community Team

That is not the same point value in two ranges, because one of them represents the single point figure 2.3, and the other represents >2.3 (i.e., any value greater than 2.3 up to 4.3).

But  (in your example) if a student gets 2.3 what rating do they have?

That looks perfect! Do you still need assistance with this?

I am really sorry but I can't see this as a solution...this is the problem that I originally stated. What grade does one of my students get if they get 70? Is it a B or an A?
