How can you use a rubric to enter a grade for a student who did not submit the assignment?
I was expecting to find the rubric under View grade details >> Manual override, but it's not the case!
I submitted this idea years ago. I bet it has been submitted many times. Some one connived an intriguing work around, but I don't have time to look it up. Tomorrow, maybe.
I just ran into this while helping a faculty in the last week or so! Can the student just go in and submit a comment to the assignment so that the instructor can grade it using the rubric? We solved our problem by having the faculty member create a column manually in her grade center that was tied to the rubric. In her case, none of the students were really using the Assignment to submit the work, they were all doing it in class or some other way.
Yes!!! I believe this was the work around. To make a single column automatically show the grade, you need a third column, min/max type, which looks at the assignment column and the manually grade column for whichever location has the grade.
That's a lengthy work-around if it's for one student! I'd manually enter the grade and send them a PDF of the rubric with the comments.
Meegan, you are correct. If I recall, the use case was either a course that was going to be reused or copied over and over. This set up would them be available on a recurring basis for the odd students who can't upload. There was also one more twist having to do with the columns that are visible or communicating to the student where to look for feedback.
All in all, the rubric really needs to be available for grading in the assignment column whether or not an upload was made.
I use rubrics constantly for attendance, and there are no submissions there. But that is in a created column, not an assignment. For an assignment, I have to just manually enter the zero. I was just complaining about this the other day. In Moodle we had a feature (under single item view in the Gradebook) that allowed us to assign a zero to no submissions with one click. I have not found a similar feature in Blackboard. You must either go down the column in the Blackboard gradebook (my favorite) or go into the manual override for each student (irritates my wrist). Just remember, however, with the override, if they do finally submit something late (due to a medical excuse), you have clear the manual override, which is not intuitive. I created a Jing video to demonstrate how to clear the override and noticed that once I have applied and removed the override, the rubric icon shows up! But this happens before the student has submitted anything, so I surmise this is because Blackboard now has an "attempt" in its brain. I will keep exploring, but not today. I have zeros to assign. :-)
I just noticed that my demo was on a discussion board--not an assignment. On an "assignment", no rubric shows up without the submission.
Possibly easier to have a standard non submission assignment template document and manually submit that for the student. If you ever click on the assignment to question why they fail, the non submit template is there.
@Donna we tryed to solve that directly from the Grade Center. In that place we "create a new row", then in the options you have the chance to "add rubric".
To give the score to the student you need to go straight to the row with the rubric, then "Score Details", and "see rubric" and give the scores.
We use that way to qualify student when we have an assesment without send something.
I hope this information helps you!
