Rubrics Alignment

Rubrics Alignment

(4)

The rubric columns tables could be manually adjusted to be the same width. Manually adjusting the rubric will produce the rubric lines to be aligned.

This is an idea that we've seen a few times in the past, but has never gotten a lot of support.  You can find more history on that in https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/10863 

We do like seeing ideas come around again to see if they've become more important as priorities change.  Thanks for the submission

Why are they not aligned? We shouldn't need to manually adjust them. If there are 5 columns, that's 20% of the available space for each column right? I'm sure it is slightly more complex than this, but not that much more complex - after all you do it nicely by the time the rubrics are presented in SpeedGrader. 

It is visually and therefore cognitively challenging for students to view, say, a 5 column rubric that has alignment all over the place. Please fix this. 

Also, links to old ideas are frequently not available at the moment (eg. the one above to https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/10863  tells me Access Denied) so we start again.

This is a big target for me!  My ELA students need to read the rubric from left to right (criterion) as well as top to bottom (rating).  I'm struggling to put something out that looks slipshod when I expect better from them.  

If I upload an external rubric will I be able to link it to my Outcomes and Grader?
