The new rubrics functionality allows for the usage of more complex rubrics. Teachers can now provide explanations for each level of the criteria and use points for each level. The usage of points allows the assignment to turn into a summative assessment. This feature provides teachers with a clear visual overview of how students scored in each category. Making it easy to see if interventions are needed for specific elements, for instance, the average score on Grammar and Spelling in the image below is rather low and might require extra attention.

Teachers can either create a new rubric for a new assignment, or if they want to use the same rubric for another assignment, this is also possible thanks to the copy option. If needed, the teacher can also preview the rubric before copying it with the view option. See the figures below.
