Duplicating Rating Scales in the Same Rubric

Duplicating Rating Scales in the Same Rubric

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

  Idea will be open for vote May 5th, 2015 - August 5th, 2015  Learn more about voting...

 

I just finished building a course for an instructor, and the course had several rubrics.  Most of the rubrics used the same rating scale:

  • 5 = Excellent - Able to demonstrate this skill without errors.
  • 4 = Acceptable - Able to demonstrate this skill with minor errors.
  • 2 = Needs Improvement - Needs to improve on quality of performance of this skill.
  • 0 = Unacceptable - Unable to perform this skill; redo is required.

It became very time consuming to manually enter these rating scales line by line...especially when there were 15+ criteria per rubric (x10 Assignments).  It would be very helpful if there was an option to let us copy point values (such as 5, 4, 2, 0) from row to row.  This would be a huge time saver for many people.

Can someone please re-submit this? This is a very necessary feature for our school (and many others) to move to Canvas for full grading capability.

Whatever became of this? I have a lengthy rubric with the same ratings for each criteria. It is taking me so long creating each one manually. This seems like a basic feature.

In case you haven't found it yet, https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-8844-importing-rubrics-from-a-spreadsheet  is a wonderful resource that you can use to make those rubrics pretty quickly in Excel.

Thanks for the plug, ishar-uw The version I just unveiled this morning actually makes this even easier than the first release last Monday. You can now specify the points just once at the top of the rubric and then just list the criteria underneath it.

Some people won't have the ability to add extensions to their work computers because they're locked down or they just don't feel comfortable doing so. Even though this script makes it ridiculously easier than what you have to do in Canvas, it's still not for everyone. chofer@morainepark.edu‌, who started the request said it worked for him (after removing an embedded newline), hopeful nminnick@marian.edu can find it useful as well.
