Education rubric overview

Rubrics are an effective and widely-used way of grading assignments, and the education API in Microsoft Graph supports them.

A grading rubric is a matrix of qualities, levels, and criteria, as follows:

Level Level
Quality Criterion Criterion
Quality Criterion Criterion

An example of a grading rubric might be:

Good Poor
Argument The essay's argument is persuasive. The essay's argument does not make sense.
Spelling and Grammar The essay uses proper spelling and grammar with few or no errors. The essay has numerous errors in spelling and/or grammar.

Grading using a rubric involves selecting one level for each quality in the rubric.

A rubric may have points associated with each level, and a weight associated with each quality. If present, weights must add up to 100.

Good (2 points) Poor (1 point)
Argument (weight 50) The essay's argument is persuasive. The essay's argument does not make sense.
Spelling and Grammar (weight 50) The essay uses proper spelling and grammar with few or no errors. The essay has numerous errors in spelling and/or grammar.
