Rubrics not saving graded information in Discussion Board Forums

posted Feb 4, 2014, 7:36 AM by Calvin Bishop
When using rubrics to grade discussion board forums, the graded options/points selected as well as the graded rubric feedback is not being saved.  It does correctly calculate the total points and saves the grade correctly.  If the option to show the students the rubric with points is selected, the students will not actually be able to see the rubric points, only the rubric itself.  

Scope:  Discussion board forums that utilize rubrics.

Status:  Resolved with the upgrade of the Discussions building block on November 18, 2013.

Reported for:  9.1 Service Pack 12.

References:  BB-539.

Work around:  Instead of grading through the discussion board, grading will need to be done through the grade center.

Go to Control Panel > Grade Center > Full Grade Center.
Find the student - discussion that needs grading and click the drop down arrow on that cell.
Click on View Grade Details.
Click on Edit Grade.
Click on View Rubric.
Use the rubric to grade as you normally would.  Then click on Save.
Click Save once more to save the grade.
