Advanced Grading Forms

When advanced grading methods are enabled, the grade selection element is replaced with more complex assessment forms. These are checklists, rubrics, and marking guides. Instructors select the grading form they want to use on activities that allow it, such as Assignments and Advanced forums.

Advanced grading form templates can be created. Only site administrators and managers share the templates site-wide.Templates allow for the quick creation of forms that can then be reused in multiple courses on a site. Existing forms can be published as a template or new ones can be created from scratch.
