Add a Rubric to a Discussion

Note: Rubrics can now be added to the Discussion tool. Due to a new D2L update in Fall 2018, they no longer have to be added to the Discussion Grade Item. If a Rubric is already attached to the Discussions Tool, it cannot be attached to a Grade Item, or vice versa.

Also note: If the Rubric is attached to the Grade Item, you cannot associate the Discussion Topic with the respective Grade Item.
