A rubric can be used to evaluate student’s work based on defined criteria and scales. Instructors can create and share rubrics, allowing other instructors to upload the rubrics to their classes. If you have not already done so, add your rubric to the assignment, then allow students to submit their work.
Once the students have submitted their work, you can use the rubric to help mark their papers.

Rubric Criteria
Remember that a rubric will only be available when you start marking if a rubric was associated with the coursework when the coursework submission link was set up. Also, note you do not have to use the rubric to calculate the overall mark (a calculated rubric). The rubric can just be used to provide formative feedback.
Once marked, the rubric criteria is attached to the student’s papers.
