How do I view the rubric for my graded discussion?

Your instructor may include a rubric as part of a graded discussion. The rubric is a set of criteria that your instructor can use to grade your discussion. Before submitting your discussion, you can use the rubric to evaluate your own work and make sure your discussion fulfills your instructor's requirements.

Note: Not all graded discussions include a rubric.

The rubric includes criteria [1], ratings with point values [2], criterion total points [3], and total points possible [4]. A rubric criterion may include up to five different ratings and individual point values.

View Rubric Outcome

The rubric may also include an outcome associated with the course. Outcomes are identified by a small flag and are used to assess learning mastery in a course. The outcome also shows the threshold for the outcome, or the number of points you must achieve to meet expectations. Your instructor may allow you to view outcomes results in your course grades.
