New Quizzes: Attach a Rubric to Individual Questions on a Quiz


I would love to be able to attach a rubric for individual essay questions on a quiz, rather than a rubric to the entire quiz. My current workaround is to just an enormous rubric with duplicated rows for each essay question, but this is kind of silly.

For open-ended questions that require rubric grading, I should be able to attach a distinct rubric to each.

I'd also like this feature! It's laborious to manually keep track of points for essay questions. A rubric feature for individual essay questions would would help immensely.

Would be helpful to be able to add a rubric to the open-ended questions or the short answers. particularly as a lot of them are 3 marks for part a, 6 marks for part b, 2 marks part c. Would make auto-calculating easier to view.

I co-ordinate an introductory college level course that often has multiple (5+) instructors dealing with different sections.  The ability to add a rubric, optionally not visible to students, and a sample answer, would be a tremendous step forward in our ability to maintain a consistent marking criteria across the various deliveries.

This feature would reduce so much time for me.  My current workaround is to type comments into each question so that students understand why they missed certain points.  Yes, I could just copy and paste statements, but I use essay responses for small passage reading comprehension questions.  Because I teach Spanish, I need those responses to be complete sentences, not just one word answers.

Please add this feature soon.

Hello! Hello!

I am an elementary teacher.

I use Learning Mastery as my grading system.  Whenever I create a quiz, I have to go back to the "Quizzes" link, select "edit" next to the quiz and then attach a rubric to it in order to be able to grade it for Learning Mastery.  This is VERY TIME CONSUMING- lots of clicking and navigating back and forth.  It would be really nice if the option was available to attach a rubric right as I was creating the quiz.  Maybe when I "align it to an outcome?"

YES! I have a faculty member BEGGING for this - literally reading this over my shoulder. We need this. With all the issues people have with New Quizzes and Rubrics anyways, how hard could this be to add?

Please add this!! It's a feature that's been on the idea list since at least 2015.

I would also like to see this! It would be nice if it was on both old and new quizzes.
