How do I add a rubric to an assignment that is using a Google Doc through the Launch External Tool feature?

Jump to solution

I provide my students with a Google Doc that is already set up in MLA format for essay assignments. However, I am having a difficult time figuring out how to attach a rubric to the same assignment when I am using this feature. Any assistance or advice is welcome and greatly appreciated.

Hello kabrown Thank You for posting your question.  While  @9927744 's suggestion of using an Excel spreadsheet may work for your needs, it is actually possible to attach a Canvas rubric to a LTI tool such as Google Docs and use it for grading.  You'll want to check out this Feature Idea, https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/4160-lti-external-tools-ability-to-add-rubric" modifiedtitle="..., for the basic "how to".  And, if you feel that this is something that you'd like to see implemented in Canvas, I would encourage you to add your vote and maybe even post a comment to the bottom of that conversation thread letting Instructure know why something like this would be important to you.  I hope this will be of help to you, Kadeshia.  Please let me know if you have questions about this.

Kadesia, welcome!  I'm not as familiar with Google docs as my county is an Office county, however, have you thought of making your rubric in an Excel-type spreadsheet and adding this to the document?  I usually make my rubrics in Excel because I find it easier to change the spacing of the boxes.  Best of luck!
