This article will show how to mass-grade a Rubric assessment that was created using the Points grading scale. 

There are two ways to mass-grade a points-based Rubric assessment; from the assessment itself or from the gradebook.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To Mass-Grade it from the Assessment Itself:

  • Within the Assessments module, click on Assigned, then select the class for which you wish to grade an assessment. 
  • Click on the assessment you wish to grade. 
  • Check the box to the left of each student you wish to assign the same grade to.  To select all students, click the checkbox at the top.

  • Optional - Leave a comment if you choose - this comment will be given to the students that were selected.
  • Double-click the dropdown in the appropriate column to assign the grade to all students who are checked. Do this for as many rubric descriptors as you'd like.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To Mass-Grade it from the Gradebook:

  • Enter the gradebook module. Check the box next to First Name. This will select all of your students (if you wish to exclude certain students from the grade you are going to mass-assign, simply uncheck their name). 
  • Under the assessment you wish to mass-grade, double-click the first student's score. This will allow you to manually enter a grade. Type in the grade and hit enter on your keyboard. This will automatically fill in the grades for all of the students that were selected.  This will assign a total for the assessment, but will not grade the individual descriptors and standards attached to them.  To mass grade standards, use the method at the top of this article.
