You can build a grading rubric for your assignment in the Create Your Rubric page. If you want SmartMusic to automatically provide an assessment grade for each student, mouse over the Assessment Grade criterion and click Add To Rubric




Once the Assessment Grade criterion has been added, the Grade This Assignment Automatically checkbox appears. This option is available when an assignment is only being graded on the Assessment Grade criterion. When Grade This Assignment Automatically is selected, the assignment is automatically graded according to the computer-based assignment score. This grade appears immediately in the Gradebook. When an assignment is past due, it is automatically graded as a zero. You can modify the grade at any time in the Gradebook. When Grade This Assignment Automatically is deselected, an assessment grade is still automatically generated but you'll need to follow the steps in the Grading article to confirm the grade. 




Additional criteria can be added to grade an assignment like Recording, Dynamics, and Articulations. New criteria is not automatically assessed but the grading criteria is customizable. To create new criteria that can be added to the rubric for this assignment and future assignments, click plus.png. A description appears. Here, you can add the criterion title and the description of what the student is being rated on for that criterion.  




You can also add multiple levels to a criterion. Click Multiple to create a multi-level criterion. Each level awards a percentage of the total points for that criterion. After you fill out the information for one level, click Add New Level to add another.  




Once you are satisfied with your criterion's description, click Save Criterion to save your changes. If you need more information on an existing criterion, or need to make an edit to its description, mouse over the criterion under the My Criteria column and click Edit. When you are finished building your grading rubric, enter the number of points possible for each criterion you've added to your rubric. The points are automatically totaled up. Click next_button.png when finished.
