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, select Assigned, then select the class for which you wish to grade an assessment. 

  • Select the assessment you wish to grade. 

To give multiple students the same grade: 

  • select their names

  • score the first student in your selection

  • the scores will autofill for the names you selected

  • Optional - Leave a comment if you choose - this comment will be given to the students that were selected.


To Mass-Grade it from the Gradebook:

  • 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.
