Hi, folks. I'm a Canvas Admin and I have an idea I think would be helpful for those using rubrics in conjunction with New Quizzes.
It's currently possible to attach a Rubric to a New Quiz and select "use for grading" but we've noticed some problematic behavior when we try to do this. Everything works great when grading from the rubric until a student earns zero points on all elements of the rubric. In that instance the student's grade (0) is never pushed to the gradebook. It would be wonderful if this could be addressed in future improvements to quizzes/rubrics.
It seems like even though it's technically possible to attach a rubric to a quiz the behavior isn't really 100% supported by Canvas. It would be good if this could be improved because quizzes have some great features (like time limits and accommodation options) that make it ideal for exams that have file upload components. For assessments like this, rubrics are very handy. Students are given a clear understanding of what they're being assessed on and instructors can grade easily.
For any Instructure folks who want to see this in action you can check out the screencast I created for the following case:

I can't post it here because it shows student info.
