User Role: Instructor
I'm confused as to why this extra step exists. If I'm grading an assignment in SpeedGrader based off of a rubric, why do I need to select "View rubric" every single time?
If I have it set to grade based off of a rubric, the rubric should show automatically.
From a usability standpoint, this extra click to open the rubric is entirely unnecessary. If I'm using the rubric for grading, why do I first need to move to the next student and then open the rubric. When grading 50 students assignments, this is 50 extra clicks that do not need to be there.
Yes, I think that if the rubric showed automatically, this would be helpful.
I was about to request the same feature. It makes no sense as to why I have to hit "view rubric" every time I want to grade something. It would be a time saver if the rubric would automatically show up.
YES!! This is one of my biggest pet peeves about Canvas. I agree that the rubric should open automatically. It is incredibly annoying to have all those extra clicks EVERY single time.
Indeed, I have stopped using rubrics within Canvas partly because of this issue of so much overhead. It just doesn't compete with my own Excel + email process.(I also need a "default" value for rubric items that I choose not to evaluate when grading.)
Note: This is part of a much larger, bigger project though. From my perspective, getting an entire class of 20 students to preload over a network and doing the hundreds of little UX adjustments so that I can quickly flip between student solutions is even more important.
Similarly, I have a desire that someday Canvas could compete with Gradescope when it comes to grouping student responses and managing comments with associated points off.
Totally agree with this! There should be NO need for the extra click to open the rubric. Seems like an incredibly easy fix. Instructure, any response to this?
Rubrics should not be forced open automatically in SpeedGrader. There are reasons for using SpeedGrader other than grading, like doing a quick check of the work and leaving a comment before you actually grade. Opening the rubric can push those comment boxes off the screen, especially if you have long rubrics. I only use the rubric to grade once, but I leave lots of comments.
That said, the people writing here probably have a different workflow than I do and so opening the rubric makes sense for them. Merely asking for the rubric to be automatically opened is just touching the tip of a bigger problem.
Please consider having the rubric automatically open in Speedgrader (if using the rubric to grade) to save an extra click for every student. It would be great to have the rubric automatically there when grading so the process went faster and smoother. Thanks for your consideration.
