D2L Rubrics are useful tools for grading any assignment. Rubrics can be attached to nearly any activity or grade item and provide a faster and easier way to grade and provide students with immediate feedback.
However, if you want to download the graded rubric for your own records, it is not immediately clear how to do this. You could try to copy and paste the rubric into a table in Word or take a screenshot (or several), but both of these options do not give you exactly what you need and are time-consuming.
If you typically attach rubrics to a Discussion Board or Grade item, you can view this page for more detailed information.
