Rubrics can be used with answers to open questions, like essays, that are not auto-scored. Rubrics will be shown alongside the questions they're associate with when you're marking an exam.
The Rubric Bank stores the Rubrics and Rationales for a Course so they can be re-used across Exams. Rubrics and Rationales can be added and modified by users with the appropriate permissions.
Like the Question Bank, you can create a Rubric within an Exam or in the Bank itself.
