Assessing with rubrics in Brightspace

You can provide students with feedback and assess them in Brightspace with the help of the rubrics tool. These rubrics can then be used in combination with other Brightspace tools. 

The functions of rubrics

  • Copy previously created rubrics with Course Copy.
  • Share a rubric with students, before or after the assessment.
  • Provide feedback for each individual criterium and level within the rubric.
  • Link rubrics to Grade Items.
  • Use rubrics in the ePortfolio. 
  • Share rubrics with colleagues.


There are several manuals available about creating and using rubrics.


Your Teaching Information Point will help you with the use of Rubrics.
