Institutions using the master-course model need quick, easy ability to customize Speedgrader rubrics for discussions in each master class to copy to individual sections. A single global rubric for all discussions in all courses is not acceptable from a pedagogical/andragogical perspective, an assessment perspective, or any other perspective.
I eagerly ask for Canvas to partner with an institution in the master-course model (like us) to quickly address this major issue. Our ideal set-up would be:
- Each discussion forum can have its own unique rubric, written and weighted by faculty leaders in the department/program
- An ability to map/link discussion rubrics to the CLOs with easy analytics
- The ability to adjust individual discussion rubrics during master course revisions
Alternatively, we could settle for a limited menu of sandbox rubrics (15-20 different rubrics) that can be copied and implemented by faculty and course developers during master course development or revision. The bottom line is that we cannot have a single rubric for all discussions in all courses.
We love SpeedGrader. We just need rubrics that assess properly! Let's innovate!
