    Say you have three assignments, a pre-lab, a quiz, and a post-lab all for one lab experiment.  Now you want to have the pre-lab and quiz score to be included in the final grade of the post-lab assignment, but in order to do this you must manually, by hand, type in the score from the corresponding pre-lab and quiz.  What if there was a way that canvas rubrics could be set up in a way that you can link a criterion of a rubric in the post-lab assignment to automatically pull the score for a student into that rubric so that you no longer had to manually do this for hundreds of students?  This would greatly reduce the amount of time and errors that come with doing it manually.  Here is an example:

     

    Student 1:

    Pre-lab score for Lab #1: 8/10

    Quiz score for Lab #1: 12/15

    Post-lab score Lab #1: 24/25

     

    Post-lab Rubric for Lab #1:

    Question 1: Full marks, Half marks, No marks (15/15)

    Question 2: Full marks, Half marks, No marks (5/5)

    Question 3: Full marks, Half marks, No marks (4/5)

    Pre-lab: *Automatically pulls score from a linked assignment* (8/10)  Where originally you had to manually look up the score for the student and plug in a value of 8

    Quiz: *Automatically pulls score from a linked assignment* (12/15)

    Total Score for Student: (44/50)
