How do I edit a rubric in a course?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

After you've created a rubric, you may need to edit the details in your rubric. Generally you should not edit your rubric if you've already attached it to an assignment that has been published.

Note: If a rubric has been used in an assignment that has received student submissions, or if a rubric is aligned to more than one assignment, you cannot edit the rubric. However, you can create a copy from the assignment rubric.
