I'm wondering if anything experiencing an issue where when an assignment is graded using a rubric with ranges (e.g. 15 > 9 is exceptional), the student ends up receiving the top end of the range of marks?
Hi Joanna Lau - That is, in fact, by design in a rubric with ranges. The ranges are more (in my opinion) a visual indicator for students when compared to non-ranged rubrics, which showed only the top score for each rating. If you check the online lesson How do I use a rubric to grade submissions in SpeedGrader? under the Complete Rubric heading, under the illustration there it notes:
If a criterion includes a range, clicking a rating selects the entire range and defaults to the highest value in the range .
Therefore, to give a student something other than the top score, you will have to manually type it into the text box at the end of that specific row, as explained in the following line under that illustration:
To select a different value within a range, type the value into the Points (pts) field .
I guess it's a bit easier for those of us who lived with the "old" rubrics for so long before ranges even became a feature, but I can see your confusion.
I hope this helps!
Thanks, Ken, for your very thorough explanation.
Happy to help!
