Changing a Rubric

If you have a non 5-point rubric and need to convert to the 0-4 levels, the best way to do this is to make your currently attached SLO and corresponding assessment inactive, then create a new one with a 5-point rubric. You should either use a 5-point rubric that mirrors the typical grading scale, or use the college's Generic 5 Point Rubric. Making an SLO and corresponding assessment inactive does not affect old assessment results.

Note: Coordinators in eLumen have the ability to edit or change a rubric, but they should do so only when the changes do not affect assessment results entered in the past using the old rubric. If you feel that the affected assessment results are inconsequential, you can click here to learn how to create a new rubric.

Deactivate SLO/assessment, use Generic 5 Point Rubric

  1. After logging into eLumen, click your department link under Coordinator at the top of the screen. (If you ever need to get back there, just click Home link at the top of the menu on the left or the eLumen icon above that).
  2. Click View Courses.
  3. Choose the course in which you want to edit a rubric.

    Access your course

  4. Click Course SLOs, then click the pencil icon next to the SLO that has the rubric you want to make inactive.

    Click pencil icon to access rubric.

  5. For Set Status, change Active to Inactive. Click Save and Close.

    Change Active to Inactive

  6. Click Course Assessments, then click the pencil icon next to the assessment. Under the Active column for the assessment, click the Toggle link to change from Yes to No.

    Click Toggle

  7. Create your new SLO (you can even copy and paste the old one). While doing so, choose to use the college's Generic 5 Point Rubric by selecting All in the Owner drop-down list, typing "generic 5 point rubric" in the Text Search box, clicking Search, then clicking Select next to Generic 5 Point Rubric (the one below it is for Student Services).

    Select the Generic 5 Point Rubric

  8. After you finish creating the SLO and mapping to a core competency, make sure to name your assessment (you can even use the old name), and link them together. You are finished.
