Blackboard Outcomes - Importing a Course Rubric

Hamline University uses Blackboard Outcomes for program-assessment purposes. You may be asked to use an assignment in a course you are teaching to be evaluated i.e. to ensure that students are achieving objectives laid out by the department/program. This could mean using a course rubric for evaluation, which most likely, will have been sent to you by the chair. Details on Blackboard rubrics, including videos, can be found on the Blackboard web site:

  1. Log into Blackboard and navigate to the course in question.
  2. Go to Control Panel>Course Tools>Rubrics.
  3. Click on the Import Rubric button.
  4. Click on the Browse My Computer button, find the saved zip file, and then click on the Open button.
  5. Click on the Submit button and then click on the OK button.
  6. To view or edit the rubric, mouse over the rubric until a gray circle appears to the right of the rubric title.
  7. Click on the gray circle and choose the Open or Edit menu option.
