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 1: Select Rubric when adding a new question.
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.
