You can customize any checklist/rubric in Writable, including the number of points associated with each checklist/rubric item:
1. Go to “My Assignments” and click "Edit" on the tile of the assignment you’d like to edit.
2. Scroll to the “Writing & Review” section to see the checklist/rubric.
3. Next, to each item on the list, you’ll see a box labeled “Points”.
4. Increase the point value to indicate that a particular item is worth more in the overall score.
For example, if you set an item’s point value to "3", then students will see that it's worth 3x more points than the other items on the checklist/rubric. When grades are calculated and exported, that particular checklist/rubric item will contribute more to the overall assignment grade.
