  1. Select Add Gradebook Item to create a new item.
  2. Or, select the down-arrow in the column heading for an existing gradebook item, and then select Edit Item Details.

Note: If the gradebook item has a lock icon to on the left side of the grading box, it is coming from another tool. You will not be able to use a rubric with locked items, since they must be graded from within the tool of origin. If you wish to use a rubric, attach a rubric to that assessment in its tool of origin (Assignments or Tests and Quizzes).
