Rubric Override

A rubric allows you to swiftly mark a student's assignment, by clicking the level that the student has attained for each criteria. The rubric then calculates the grade based on points you've allocated. As the points you've allocated can sometimes limit your marking, there is now an option to override the automatically calculated mark.
