Linking a rubric to a Learning Space module

This guide will take you through the steps of how to link a rubric to the content in the Learning Space so that students are able to view the rubric in the module for Assessment Information.

There are two methods of linking the rubric in the Learning Space:

Add the rubric link into the Assessment module description where there is an outline of the assessments.

Add the rubric into the Assessment information module as a topic.

The rubric quick-links will only work if the assessment dropbox or discussion is visible to students, and the rubric is linked to the assessment dropbox or discussion.

Method 1: Add the rubric link to the Assessment module description

1. Go to the relevant unit space in VU Collaborate and open the Learning Space.  You then select the Assessment Information module and click inside the description where the information for assessment is placed.
