Use a rubric

Prerequisites: A rubric must have already been created and saved in Digiexam in order to use it for an exam. You can find instructions on how to create a rubric here.

Note: It's possible to choose Rubric based assessment as the grading type for the exam and proceed without a rubric connected to the exam.

Create exams with rubrics

1. Select the Exams tab on the left-hand toolbar. Find the exam you want to link a rubric to. Click the Edit button for that exam (figure 2.1).
