Can I edit a rubric in canvas?

Is there a way to make it look like this..

  • dog
  • cat
  • fish

as opposed to this...

Hi  @tom_rhoden  Welcome to the Canvas Community!

I just tested this, and despite entering the text vertically, Canvas displayed it after save as a horizontal line of text.

There is currently a feature idea open for voting that requests the ability to format rubrics. Check it out at , and if it meets your needs, support it by voting.


Hi Tom,

The work around for this would be separating them out so it would be 

Dog  - yes or no

Cat - yes or no

Fish - yes or no

It's cumbersome but it does work and allows you to select more than one of the options that way.

Hope this helps,


Thank you.
