Note: In order to attach a rubric to a forum, you must first create a gradebook item and attach the rubric to that item. Then, you may select the gradebook item with rubric attached to associate with your forum or topic.
Select the Forums tool from the tool menu of your site.
Note: You must have an existing Gradebook item in order to associate the forum topic with that item, and the gradebook item must already have the rubric attached. If there are no existing items, you will need to go to the Gradebook to create the item first.
Once you have selected a gradebook item with a rubric, you may select Preview Rubric to see what the selected rubric looks like.
Note: If you want to select a different rubric, you will need to go to the Gradebook and modify the gradebook item to use the new rubric. If you need to make changes to the rubric itself, you will need to go to the Rubrics tool and modify the rubric criteria and ratings.
