Canvas Rubrics question


Sorry if this has already been address and I just haven't found it...

I'm working with faculty in a clinical nursing course that includes "weekly progress report" assignments. These assignments are arranged into a weighted assignment group so that 80% of the students' grades are based on the cumulative score for all these assignments.

And, the rubric for these assignments includes 5 graded sections: Technical Competence, Application of Knowledge, etc.

What the faculty would like to know is if there is a way to get the average for each of those 5 categories across all these assignments. So, for example, the average score for Technical Competence, separate from the other 4 criteria and separate from the grade for all these assignments.

Hope all that makes sense...

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

 @swhite3 , what came to mind when I read your scenario is the learning mastery gradebook. If you're not that familiar with it, here is a guide with some information - How do I use the Learning Mastery Gradebook to view outcome results in a course? 

I personally haven't used it, but from my understanding you would make each of the five graded sections a different learning outcome and link it to the rubric used for the assignment each week. Then you could use the learning mastery gradebook to see an overview of how students were doing on that specific outcome, etc. For more information on Outcomes see the following guides - Outcomes 

Hope this helps!
