How do I grade a Free Response Question using a Rubric?

To grade your students’ free response questions using rubrics, log into your Learning Navigator account.

Before you grade the free response question, you must have:
1. An assessment that contains a free response question. Here is an article on how to create an assessment.
2. The Free Response Question should have a rubric attached. Here is an article on how to add a rubric to a free response question.
3. Students should have taken the assessment and answered the free response question.

Grading a Free Response Question
