Brightspace assists you in creating two types of rubrics. Below is information to help you decide.

Analytic Rubrics 

  1. Two-dimensional rubrics with levels of achievement as columns and assessment criteria as rows. 
  2. Assess learners’ achievements based on multiple criteria using a single rubric.
  3. Assign different weights (value) to different criteria and include an overall achievement by totaling the criteria.
  4. Analytic rubrics may use points, custom points, or text-only (letter grades) scoring methods.
  5. Points and custom points analytic rubrics may use both text and points to assess performance; with custom points, each criterion may be worth a different number of points.
  6. For both points and custom points, an overall score is provided based on the total number of points achieved.  The overall score determines whether the activity is achieved.

Holistic Rubrics

  1. Single criterion rubrics (one-dimensional) used to assess learners’ overall achievement on an activity or item based on predefined achievement levels.
  2. Holistic rubrics may use a percentages or text-only scoring method.
