How do I add rubrics to the assessment library?

You can add rubrics to your account that faculty can incorporate into their courses and coordinators can use in course and program assessments.

Note: By default, only administrators can add rubrics to the assessment library. Faculty users must be granted permission by an admin to add a rubric. If permission has not been granted, faculty users have view-only access to rubrics.
