How can students view grading rubrics before submitting assessments? Students will ideally be able to view all grading rubrics for assessments in the My Grades section of the course, where a View Rubric button will be attached to any assignment that includes a grading rubric.

You should be able to view rubrics attached to any available graded activity through the My Grades tool in your course. Items that include a grading rubric should display a “View Rubric” link as shown below.

You can also view rubrics directly in the graded activities as shown below (method to view depends on which tool was used).

  2. Select the View Rubric button.
