New Quizzes: Rubric override in Quizzes

0 Kudos

Good Morning, 

I am a district Virtual Learning Coach working with our Math Curriculum Leads.  

In our district we have timed math facts tests which are given in all four operations across our elementary schools.  The math facts tests are scored in the quiz feature, however, the time component is not automatically taken into account.  

Teachers have created a rubric to attach to this quiz, however, the rubric score cannot override the quiz score.  

It would be nice if this were possible so that we could better align with SBAC in scoring work as Exceeded, Met, Nearly Met, and Not Met.  

Thank you,

I am looking for the same feature.  I have been hand entering in all quiz scores after grading with rubric, which is already an additional step.

Our district uses Canvas rubrics to score summative assessments (ie: quizzes). We have been using rubrics to score quizzes (both classic and new) since we started using Canvas, but began experiencing "glitches" with rubrics attached to New Quizzes in the Spring of 2021 where the rubric score entered for the New Quiz would revert to the original New Quiz numeric score. The instructor then must go back into the individual student quiz and re-enter the rubric score to get it to "stick." It doesn't always happen, but often enough to cause problems. This is a serious work flow issue and wastes time, which is frustrating for our instructors. It also causes the gradebook to be incorrect and makes student grades inaccurate. We need Canvas rubrics to work well with New Quizzes as our standards-based courses use rubrics for grading New Quiz assessments.

Just reviewing the idea suggestions for New Quizzes and came across this one.  I think the key here is to make sure the "use this rubric for assignment grading" box is left unchecked if you don't want the rubric score to override the quiz score.  If you do want it to override the score, then check the same box.
