Change the Rubric Back in SpeedGrader

Change the Rubric Back in SpeedGrader

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

The "New" Rubric in the Speed Grader view is much larger than it used to be. In order to see the Ratings you have to drag the gray divider bar over making the submission view window smaller. For some of my rubrics that have 4 or 5 ratings, I can drag the divider bar over until it takes up 2/3 of the screen and I still have to scroll side to side in the rubric window to see all of my ratings.  I used to be able to see the entire rubric using no more than half of the screen. This makes it so that my SPEED grader is much slower than it used to be. Can we put it back the way it was???

Yes, please change the rubric back. The new larger size is slowing down grading due to having to scroll more to see all of the rubric components.

I absolutely agree that I preferred the older version of rubrics that would adjust the text wrapping in each criterion line to fit the screen. This new version makes it extremely difficult to grade efficiently.  I have even tried using the wide screen on my desktop computer, and it still doesn't fit even a moderately sized rubric.

Yes, the new way in which the pre-graded rubric is displayed makes it pretty well impossible to view the submitted assignment alongside the rubric for easy grading.  I did notice that after grading/saving the rubric, the text within it does wrap, which is what it used to do while grading!  If the text wrapping can be maintained for the graded/saved rubric display, why can it not be maintained for the pre-graded rubric display?  I used to be able to see an entire rubric within half of my screen while grading, but now the rubric window has to be expanded to more than 2/3 of the screen for me to view a similar rubric.

I share this sentiment - the new/updated rubric is much too big!

Everyone knows I’m a Canvas Fangirl, but the new rubric is killing my grade time. It use to be a quick click click click and I was done! Now it’s resize, squint (because I can’t see the assignment), scroll (because I have elaborate rubrics that still don’t fit), squint, scroll, repeat... This has drastically increased my grading time. #sadpanda

This is a big deal. My time is valuable and this new size is costing me many minutes for my daily grading. I want it changed back. Google Classroom is doing better things with exporting grades. Maybe I'll need to quit trying to convert other teachers if this is not as convenient as I have been telling others.

The new rubric makes this grading option even less convenient than grading on paper. PLEASE change it back.

I'm sure many have tried this and know this trick, but for those who may not know, inside any browser if you hold Ctrl and press the minus key it reduces the screen size, if you hold Ctrl and press plus it increases the screen size, and if you hold control and press zero he returns the screen to 100%.

That just makes the entire screen larger or smaller, Jeff. This thread is concerned with making the itself rubric smaller.

Yes, CTRL+ or CTRL- is slightly faster than manually dragging the sizing bar and sliding the scroll bars around, but we really, really need a smaller rubric.

This zooms out of the ENTIRE browser window, including whatever I am trying to grade not just the rubric. Additionally, I found it doesn't make the rubric fit into one frame without scrolling, but rather makes the font size of the rubric smaller. I still have to scroll over on the frame with the rubric in order to see the entire thing.

Hi all, 

 

Thank you all for expressing your concerns associated with the new rubric implementations and the issues that you have experiences with the amount of space occupied by the new rubrics design. We certainly understand the difficulty that is presented by this issue and how it can cause problems in the grading process while using rubrics inside of SpeedGrader.

Rest be assured that we have a plan in place to address this issue and to make rubrics in SpeedGrader more usable moving forward by addressing this size issue! It is certainly on our radar and we hope to have something that better resembles the prior sizing and resizing functionality in the near future. Once we have a solution in place, we'll be sure to post it inside of the ensuing release notes. 

 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. 

 

Best,

Sidh

Thanks,  @soberoi  for this reassuring update.

One related idea created by  @jsward  just opened for voting:

Since you mentioned resizing, I'm hoping Jennifer's idea might inspire some resizing functionality for rubric comments.

Canvas folks must think we all have two large monitors. Not so! This new speed grader interface is a nightmare of scrolling and resizing on a normal laptop or desktop screen. Please bring back the old one!

 @RobDitto ‌ - thank you for putting that on my radar. We will certainly have that under consideration upon reviewing this piece of work as well.
