D2L: Associating Rubrics with Discussions


A rubric that is created in Desire2Learn can be associated with a dropbox, quiz, discussion topic and grade item.  

Note: Once associations are set, it is not possible to edit a rubric. If a rubric needs to be changed, it must be dissociated from every activity (including grade items) before editing is possible.
