Step 10: The system will automatically distribute the weight of each assignment, criteria or quiz questions evenly, unless you would like to manually change the weighting for each linked assignment.

These rubrics are based on the proficiency scale/program outcome rubric criteria set on the program level, to which the course is attached. This can be adjusted to change the calculation of points on rubric criteria, quiz questions or total assignment points to a percentage to place that student’s skill level in the correct level of the proficiency scale/program outcome rubric.
