Adjusting rubric's grade to match assignment's grade

Dear community,


So far, I could only find that when grading using rubrics, one can adjust the assignment's grade to match the rubric's grade. Since assignments normally have fixed ranges (i.e. 0-10 or 0-100) and rubrics depend on the number and type of learning outcomes and criteria included, the above matching might not be satisfactory.


I wanted to ask if there is a way to do the opposite and adjust the rubric's grade to match the assignment's one. I.e. if the total grade of the rubric is 30 and the assignment is 100, then each rubric item will be multiplied by 10/3.


If not, is it because of the required change to learning outcomes grades across assignments? This is only cosmetic in order to present the students with uniform grading and should not affect the way the learning outcomes are calculated between assignments. I.e. a learning outcomes of 5 points will still be considered as 5 points and not as 5 * 10 / 3 for all purposes except for calculating the grade of the specific assignment.


Best regards,
