You may wish to create your marking rubric before students have submitted.
This is now possible without the need to create a test student in Gradescope.
Create an Assignment
When creating the Assignment under Create Your Rubric check the box Before student submission.
Set the Outline
Once the Create Assignment button is clicked the Assignment Outline page will open.
Set the Outline as usual.
Create a Rubric
When you have saved your outline the Create Rubric page will open.
Now you can create your Rubric. Alternatively you can come back to this page at a later time to create the Rubric, without any submissions.
The option to Create Rubric will be available from the left-hand side menu when you click on the Assignment from the dashboard.
If appropriate, you can reuse the Rubric from one question on other questions – in the same assignment, or in any assignment in any course where you are the Instructor.
Please see Copying Rubrics.
