How do I add a rubric set to the template for our courses?

Jump to solution

We have overhauled our rubrics for 2022 and standardized everything at 100 points. I've labeled them all a 2022 Essay etc. (Don't get me started on generic rubrics. You have to compromise sometimes.)

My entire list of all rubrics known to man is in the university list. I would like the new shell for course building to have the set of 2022 rubrics in it without the others. So far, it looks like if a rubric isn't attached to an assignment in the course, it doesn't show in the course rubric list. How do I fix that? I have to replicate it all in Spanish too, so it would be great to be able to copy a set of the 2022 rubrics into the English template, and a second set to be translated into the Spanish set. 

 

Ideas?

Thanks for the extra detail.  I see what you mean.  To me, not being a programmer/developer, this is the expected behavior.  You can't import a university-level rubric into a course via the "Rubrics" menu of the course.  But, you can do this when creating an assignment and an attached rubric.  Then that rubric would appear on the "Rubrics" course menu.  If you remove the attached rubric from the assignment, it would be removed from the "Rubrics" screen in the course because it's not being used any more.  This is generally what happens with rubrics that are created with their assignments.

If I recall correctly, there was a question a while back in the Community about rubric behavior.  If the rubric was initially created on the "Rubrics" page of a course and then attached to an assignment later on, if you later removed the rubric from the assignment, the rubric remains on the "Rubrics" screen.  The opposite was not true, though, that if the rubric was initially added during the assignment creation process (so you didn't create the rubric via the "Rubrics" page), then the rubric would be deleted if you removed it from the assignment.

Hi @jmarrapodi ...

If I understand your question correctly, you are wanting to make rubrics that are not attached to assignments.  Is this correct?  If so, then instead of creating the assignment and then adding a rubric to it, you can go to the "Rubrics" page and create the rubric there.  Then, you can add it (if you want) to any assignment later on.

I know you didn't ask about this, but have you tried the rubric importer script created by @James Jones?  It's fantastic and has save me hundreds of hours of time building rubrics.  You might want to check this out:

Hope this information will be helpful to you!

Thanks @Chris_Hofer. Kind of. I actually have all the rubrics built at the university level, and I can see and choose them, but I was working with someone who could only see the rubrics in the course itself. I was hoping to copy the batch from the university into the course so I didn't have to recreate them again. I import and attach to an assignment and it shows, but when you swap it for another, it disappears. 

I have an essay rubric, and open question rubric. a graphic organizer rubric, a case study rubric, etc. The goal is for the designer to pick the rubric that fits. But they can't do that if they can't find it.

I wonder if this is a permissioning issue with the person that I was working with. The Dear Danielle video in today's newsletter said everyone should see the account level rubrics. They are all in the account. I just wanted them in the course so there was no confusion. Thanks @Chris_Hofer for your help.
