Canvas Clinic #9: Rubrics

Rubrics are a way to set up custom or outcome-based assessment criteria for scoring.

A Rubric is an assessment tool for communicating expectations to students and graders. Rubrics are typically comprised of rows and columns. Rows are used to define the various criteria being used to assess an assignment. Columns are used to define levels of performance for each criterion.

Rubrics can be set up as scoring or as non-scoring rubrics (allows for assessment-based and outcome-based grading without points).

Rubrics are either created at the course level, or “template” rubrics can be copied from the account or sub-account level. Once a rubric has been used to assess a student, the rubric cannot be edited. However, existing rubrics can be copied, renamed, and then edited for use on other assignments.

Lunch is provided to registrants and begins at 11:45!
