Schoology Release Notes: September 2015



Using a Rubric on Individual Test Questions

Schoology Instructors can now use rubrics to grade individual short answer and essay test questions.

Select one of your existing rubrics from the dropdown menu, or select Create New to make a new one for the question. Check the Show to students box if you want your students to see the rubric during the test.

See the Help Center for more information on short answer rubrics.
