If your district or school provides rubrics for you to use with students, you can import them into Writable and use them in assignments. You will likely need to do some adaptation, but once it’s done, they will stay in your rubric bank and be available for any assignment. We developed our rubric builder in Google Sheets to make it easy to share your rubrics with colleagues in your school or district.
To import your own rubrics, start by exporting our rubric builder in Google Sheets from an assignment that’s close to the one you’d like to assign. (How do I browse and choose templates?)
1. Click “My Assignments” and find the assignment you’d like to work on.
2. Click “Edit” in the assignment tile.
3. Click "Add/Edit Rubric" from inside the assignment template to open the Rubric Bank.
4. Click "Rubric Builder"...
and then click "Export to Google".
5. Click "Launch Rubric Builder" link This will create a Google Sheet in your Google-authenticated account, titled "Writable -- Assignment name".
6. You are now looking at that goal’s rubrics in the Writable rubric builder, all in a Google Sheet. (Check out How do I fill out the Rubric Builder? for a step-by-step guide and filling it out.)
7. Once you've made your edits and are ready to import them, go back to the editing view of your assignment in Writable.
8. Click"Add/Edit Rubric".
9. Click "Rubric Builder" then "Import Checklists".
10. You may get some error messages, alerting you to the rows to fix. Just update the Google Sheet and click import again.
11. Now you will see your successfully imported rubrics under "My Rubrics" and you can click "Add to Goal" to put them into the writing assignment.
You can delete rubrics from "My Rubrics" anytime by clicking the "x" in front of the rubric items.
