This idea is a companion to Prof. Clint Tuttle's Download each peer assessment score by student..

  • Background: A Peer Reviews API was added to Canvas in 2015 and can currently assign (POST) or clear (DELETE) peer reviewers to a submission, as well as download (GET) peer reviewers' overall comments on each submission.
  • Need: If a rubric is associated with a peer review assignment, a student reviewer can enter rubric assessments -- ratings and/or comments on each criterion in the rubric -- for the submission they've been assigned to review. However, these rubric assessments can't be accessed via the Canvas API currently.  As Clint points out, they can only be viewed individually in SpeedGrader
  • Potential use cases:
    • For each assigned peer review on a student's submission, GET the reviewer's rubric assessment (points and comments) via API if they exist.
    • Enter (POST), correct (PUT) or delete a rubric assessment via API on behalf of a student.
  • Related benefits: If implemented, the GET capability might help make Clint's idea possible.

Hi  @RobDitto ​

Thank you for the well detailed response!

We were exploring similar ideas and found

I know that the linked request is for the UI.  Would it still meet your needs?

Yes, absolutely. This idea was intended as an API companion to that UI idea.  If the current community policy is not to have related but separate API and UI ideas, feel free to archive this one.  In that case I'll simply add my API suggestions to .

Hey Rob!

Thank you for your response!  No policy at this time!  I just wanted to check wth you to see if you had a preference for API over a UI Report.  It sounds like you do, which means others may as well!  Your idea will open for voting with the June cohort.

Good news: I think this one will soon become a feature! See the Canvas Beta Release Notes (2016-09-06) - Rubrics API feature.

Clarification note: what was actually developed uses the Rubrics API, not the Peer Reviews API, to get peer reviewer rubric assessment scores. There's some related discussion at this long-running feature idea (please vote!):
