    1. By default, when you attach the rubric, the column "Show Rubric to Students" is set to No. This is the the correct selection.
       

    2. The "Points Possible" field will be autofilled based on the total points of the rubric when it is attached



    3. Submission Details - Number of Attempts: If you leave this on single attempt, you may need to allow an additional attempt for some students (ex. student submitted wrong document) [Allowing Additional Attempts Directions]



    4. Display of Grades - Uncheck "Include in Grade Center grading calculations" and "Show to students in My Grades" [this prevents students from seeing anything in their My Grades area]


    5. Availability - Leave "Make Assignment Available" checked. When the assignment submission period has concluded come back and uncheck this to hide the submission link from students.
