[+] Working with weights

[+] Level weights

A level is a column in the rubric. Level weights are integral to a rubric and are required. They determine how each criterion is scored. A simple weight scale for levels would be 1, 2, 3, etc. with 1 being the poorest performance level.


[+] Criteria weights

Criteria weights can be assigned to distribute the scoring among criteria. If no weights are assigned, all criteria will have an equal weight of 1 leaving the score determination to levels.


[+] Section weights

A section is designated by rubric divider rows. A section can be assigned an arbitrary percentage if needed.
