How do I add a Rubric to a Quiz?
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.
Generally speaking, Rubrics are added to Quizzes when you have an Outcome inside of the Rubric that you would like to use for alignment purposes. For more information on the benefits of aligning Outcomes to Quizzes, please visit the outcomes alignment lesson.
- You cannot use a rubric for grading in quizzes.
- You cannot edit or remove a rubric from a quiz after the quiz contains student submissions.
Open the quiz by clicking the quiz title.
Show Assignment Rubric
If you want to write free-form comments to students, select the I'll write free-form comments... checkbox .
If you don't want students to see the score total for the rubric, select the Hide score total for assessment results checkbox . Students can still see the point values for each criterion, but the total score will not be shown at the bottom of the rubric. This applies when students view rubrics from the Grades page.
When you are finished, click the Create Rubric button .
View the rubric for the quiz. If necessary you can edit the rubric.
