Automatically transfer overall score to learner's grade

Overview : Automatically transferring a numeric rubric's overall score to a learner's grade is possible, but it occurs only when the rubric itself has an overall score. Numeric rubrics encompass types such as point analytic, custom point analytic, and percentage holistic. When dealing with multiple rubrics, Brightspace transfers the overall score of the first numeric rubric in the pop-up window. If you wish to transfer scores from a different rubric or handle multiple rubrics, these situations must be managed separately.

  1. Select the "Assessments" dropdown from the navigation bar, and then proceed to click on "Grades."
