Bubble Sheets have two available question types: Multiple Choice and Rubric. This article will describe the process of adding Rubric Questions to your Bubble Sheet Assessment.

Step 2: Understanding the Rubric Question Logistics

If using the POINTS GRADING SCALE:

  • The number of "options" for points will match what is shown for answer options.
  • In this example, since there are 4 answer options, this question is worth 3 points.
  • CAUTION: If you change the number of answer options, it will change for all questions on the assessment. The example below shows what happens if the example above is changed to 5 answer options.

If using a STANDARDS-BASED GRADING SCALE

Step 3: Editing the Rubric Question

When clicking Edit, you will have the option to do the following:

  • Add work space
  • Format the work space added
  • Add a custom grading scale

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ IF YOU USE A CUSTOM GRADING SCALE

In the example shown above: 

  • This rubric question is now worth 6 points. When grading, you will have the option to award the student 0, 2, 4, or 6 points.
  • GradeCam will still calculate the grade based on the 0, 1, 2, 3 grading scale, BUT the Otus Gradebook WILL calculate based on the 0, 2, 4, 6 grading scale.

What this means for you:

Know that if you change the grading scale of a rubric question, GradeCam will not display the correct total percentage, but the Otus Gradebook WILL display the correct total percentage. This is a GradeCam limitation, rather than an Otus limitation.
