Manually add outcome to New Quizzes Assignment

This problem is stemming from New Quizzes not passing Outcome results back to the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which is documented in this issue.


One workaround would be to manually add a rubric to the quiz, like you can on Classic Quizzes. On the quiz overview page, you can use the three-dot menu and select Show Rubric and then Add Rubric. This allows you to manually score criteria in the SpeedGrader without aligning items in Question Banks.


I tried the same in New Quizzes and ran into a problem. Here are the steps:


  1. Create a New Quiz and add questions, etc. 
  2. Return to the Assignments list.
  3. On the New Quiz item, three-dot menu, select Edit.
  4. Click on More Options to get to the overview page.
  5. Click +Rubric at the bottom.
  6. Click on Find Outcome to import an Outcome. There's an error thrown that the URL is not valid:
backbone.js:1595 Uncaught Error: A "url" property or function must be specified
    at L (backbone.js:1595)
    at t.sync (backbone.js:1147)
    at t.default.a.a.sync (Backbone.syncWithMultipart.js:129)
    at t.sync (backbone.js:634)

    at t.r.fetch (
    at t.value (OutcomesDirectoryView.js:83)
    at t.View (backbone.js:1002)
    at t [as constructor] (

Has anyone else run into this? Any solutions besides a ticket to Instructure?
