This article is written for teachers. For the step-by-step article written for students, select the button below.


Once you have created and assigned a rubric assessment, it may require that students submit that assessment.

💡 Tips:

  • Students do not need to submit a rubric assessment in order for the teacher to grade it; teachers can grade rubric assessments at any time, even if the student does not submit.

  • Students do not need to add an attachment in order to submit a rubric assessment; they can click Submit with or without an attachment.

Example Student View:


Beginning the Assessment

  • Step 1: Navigate to the Assessments Module

  • Step 2: If the assessment doesn't notably stand out, the student can search for the assessment by keyword in the search field. They can also filter by class using the class dropdown.

  • Step 3: Once they find the assessment, they'll select the assessment.

  • Step 4: Read through any instructions and click Start.


Viewing Teacher Attachments / Google Doc

  • Any teacher attachments that were added will be shown as a link at the top of the assessment under Teacher Attachments (except for Google Docs).

  • An attached Google Doc can be found just below the rubric itself.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If instructions were also added, those will be shown in the upper-right corner, and the teacher attachments will be in the upper-right corner:


Students Adding Attachments

Students can add many different types of attachments to their rubric assessment. Students will select Choose File at the bottom of the assessment.

1 - File Upload: students can choose a file from their device to upload.

2 - Link: students can add a URL for a website.

3 - Text: students can enter text using a rich text editor with no character limit.

4 - Image: students can take a live photograph with their device's camera or upload one that is already saved on their device.

5 - Video: students can take a live video with their device (max. length of 5 minutes) or upload one that is already saved on their device (max. file size of 30mb).

6 - YouTube: students can add a URL to embed a YouTube video.

7 - Audio: students can record live audio with their device (max. length of 5 minutes) or upload one that is already saved on their device (max. file size of 30mb).

8 - Google Drive: students can add a file from their Google Drive. The student must be logged in using Google SSO.

9 - Microsoft OneDrive: students can add a file from their OneDrive. The student must be logged in using Microsoft SSO.

💡 Tip: Students can add up to 5 attachments by choosing + Another File.

Can students type directly into a Rubric Assessment?

Yes. Students can use the Text Response option to type directly into the Rubric Assessment.

If your district uses Google and you assign a Google Doc that is set up to make a copy of a Google Doc for each student, students can type into their Google Doc directly from the Rubric Assessment that way as well.

When using Google Docs: Every time a student submits a rubric assessment, I get an email from Google about the transferring of ownership for a document. How do I stop these emails?
