Apply a rubric table
Rubric tables are used to support the grading of external activities in Möbius .
External activity — An activity that was completed outside of the Möbius platform (Example — a quiz completed on paper, an oral presentation, etc.).
Rubric table — A scoring tool that establishes the grading criteria for an external activity.
To apply an existing rubric table to grade external activities, you'll:
Create an external activity in Möbius.
Select a rubric table to apply to the new external activity.
Save the external activity.
Enter your students' grades by selecting their grade from the applied rubric table.
IMPORTANT: A rubric table can only be applied to external activities, and only while the external activity is being entered into Möbius. A rubric table can't be applied to an existing external activity that already has grades entered for it. Rubric tables also can't be applied to Möbius lessons or assignments.
TIP: Once a rubric table is applied to an external activity, you're able to quickly access the external activity from the Class Homepage.
TIP: Don't have any rubric tables yet to apply to external activities? Check out Create a rubric table.
TIP: Check out Access rubric tables for reminders of what rubric tables you've already created or inherited.
