Pass/Fail Rubrics

A Pass/Fail activity is an activity where a student can either Pass (have 100% at the creation score) or Fail (“Did not meet requirements”, have 0% at the creation score), based on a rule that the instructor chooses when creating the rubric.

NOTE: Pass/Fail is available only with criteria that all have the same amount of levels

How to Create a Pass/Fail Rubric

  1. Select the Activities icon on the left navigation menu.

  2. Create an activity

    1. Fill out the activity details section.

  3. Under the Rubric heading, select ‘Edit Rubric’

  4. Select ‘Pass/Fail’ in the Rubric Grading section

  5. Select the minimum level and the rule that will be applied to the rubric.

    1. For example, “Students must at least obtain [choose a level of the rubric] in either ‘Any Criteria’, ‘Majority of Criteria’, or ‘All Criteria'

NOTE: The level will be one of the criteria levels.

Example: If the instructor chooses “Level 2” and “Any criteria”, it means that the student will have to have a creation score with at least Level 2 in one of the criteria.

For both the student and the instructor, the rubric will view as:

Creation Score

NOTE: Pass/Fail activities work as any activities until the evaluation stage begins.

When a student is evaluated (either by other students or by the instructor), they can either:

  • Pass. Based on the evaluation average or instructor’s grade, the rule that was defined in the rubric is met.

    • The student creation score is 100%, even if the actual average is not 100%

  • Fail. Not meet requirements. The rule that was defined in the rubric is NOT met. The student creation score is 0%, even if the actual average is not 0%
