    Similar to a previously archived idea here: (Create rubrics offline and then upload.), it would be very, very helpful to be able to create a rubric offline and then import it into either the course or to a specific assignment.


    The interface to create a rubric requires extensive clicking and is very time-consuming, especially if I am working off a rubric provided by publisher (it contains maybe 30 different criteria).


    If we could create it in say Excel, export it into .csv format, and then import it into either the course or a specific assignment, it would be much faster. In Excel, we have a complete grid available so we can enter points and titles very quickly.

    We really appreciate everyone that took the time to contribute their thoughts and experiences in this thread. While I know we aren't going to be able to add this specific request in the next six months. We are doing research to determine what is the best way to get rubrics in Canvas. Maybe redoing the workflow that currently exists would fix the problem or creating a new magic rubric creator all together....more work needs to be done before we have the answer. At the end of the day we need to make it as easy as possible to get the rubrics that educators already have in Canvas so you can utilize the rubric tool to gather data and give students valuable feedback.
