Attach Rubrics to Activities

Associate a rubric with an activity.

An association is formed when a rubric is selected to be used by a tool. You cannot associate a rubric with an activity unless its status is set to Published. By default, the status for new rubrics is set to Draft. When you are finished creating your rubric you should change the status to Published to indicate that it is complete.
