A Rubric is an assessment tool used to communicate performance expectations to students. Rubrics are typically comprised of performance criteria and defined levels of performance organized in rows and columns respectively. Rubrics can also aid in more consistent grading by multiple graders.
Rubrics in Canvas can be aligned with:
- Quizzes (but not quiz questions)
- Graded Discussions
To learn more about Canvas Rubrics, feel free to watch the Rubric Video and view the Rubric Tutorials on this page.
Note: While the Rubric Video is aimed at Administrators, the content within it applies to Instructors as well. To access Rubrics as an Instructor, go to Outcomes then select Manage Rubrics.
